Climate change, gender equality and human rights in Asia: regional review and promising practices
The report aims to provide a better understanding for policymakers in Asia about what focusing on human rights and gender equality in the context of climate change entails in practice. By synthesising evidence from literature across 10 different sectors (agriculture and forestry, fisheries, mining, construction, energy, manufacturing, wholesale and retail trade, tourism, education and health), the report offers policy recommendations for human rights and gender responsive climate policies.
