Women More Vulnerable To Climate Change Threats But Less Likely To Receive Funding, Report Says

Inter Press Service: Millions of Dollars for Climate Financing but Barely One Cent for Women
“The statistics tell the story: in some parts of the world, four times as many women as men die during floods; in some instance women are 14 times more likely to die during natural disasters than men. … A report published last month by the Global Greengrants Fund (GGF), the International Network of Women’s Funds (INWF) and the Alliance of Funds found that ‘women throughout the world are particularly vulnerable to the threats posed by a changing climate’ – yet they are the least likely to receive proper funding to recover from, adapt to or protect against the dangers of disasters…” (Perera, 4/2).
