Climate change basically affects all people—but to varying degrees. Apart
from regional differences, this is mainly due to social structures. Being affected by
the consequences of climate change also depends to a relevant extent on genderconform
behaviour and gender-unjust distribution of resources. Women and men
are affected differently by the effects of climate change. A central reason for this
is their social understanding of their roles and role behaviour and the social and
economic inequality associated with them. Thus, climate change-induced problems
and responses are deeply connected to gender justice.
