Egypt Climate Change Gender Action Plan (ccGAP) Report

Climate change will affect all countries in all parts of the world, but the impacts of climate change will be differently distributed amongst regions, generations, age classes, income groups, occupations and genders. The poor, the majority of whom are women living in developing countries, will be most disproportionately negatively affected. Because climate change affects women and men differently, a gender perspective - firmly rooted in the principle of gender equality - is essential when considering policy development, decisionmaking, and in the development and implementation of strategies concerning mitigation and adaptation.
