The State of Gender Equality and Climate Change is a series of reports covering countries across the Asia-Pacific (Vietnam and Cambodia), and Nepal. The report raises awareness about the need for gender-responsive climate action, analyzes gendered impacts of climate change, and suggests ways to enhance and mainstream gender equality into climate-relevant sectoral policies and actions. The objectives of the report are two-fold: 1. To strengthen country-driven processes by presenting more evidence of the links between gender equality and climate change and analysing gendered impacts in the forestry, agriculture, energy, and water sectors; and 2. To provide country-specific recommendations on enhancing gender responsive policy implementation and actions to further augment the integration of gender equality in climate relevant policy areas.
The Nepal country report was prepared by the International Centre for Integrated Mountain Development (ICIMOD), United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), and UN Women.
