I’m wondering if this chapter of the IPSP report is the only place where gender issues related to climate change, biodiversity, chemical pollution, food security, etc. are discussed. There are so many other ways that gender impacts and is impacted by the current environmental crisis.
Thanks for your question, Sally. Gender issues appear in most chapters. Gender and the environment less so, since our focus is not just on the environment but very much on the social. Please check chapter 4 which does discuss gender and sustainability (this is the chapter that has most about the environment). Chapter 18 is also likely to be dealing with health-gender issues connected to the environment, but I have not yet seen it.
