Equal doesn’t mean identical. In a rapidly evolving, disruptive world – that is also experiencing a climate breakdown – it is high time we help women and girls – and men and boys – to become more empowered, by breaking down the barriers that hold them back from experiencing full, healthy and equal lives. Gender equality is key to efficient, equitable and sustainable climate change action. How do we prioritize it, and where are we going wrong?
