Gender Equality and Climate Finance Technical Brief
The USAID technical brief on Gender Equality and Climate Finance, which outlines how gender-responsive climate finance offers a pathway to achieve equitable climate action and support a low-carbon future. The work presented in this brief demonstrates that to ensure equitable climate action outcomes, climate finance must explicitly consider the gendered impacts of climate change and gender disparities in access to finance. This brief provides insights into overcoming barriers to gender-responsive climate finance, provides recommendations for interventions, and includes more about the work USAID is already doing in this domain. Additional resources can be found at the end of the document.
