Women in Jordan are particularly impacted by climate change facing disproportionate economic, social and cultural challenges, and exposure to climate-related social tensions. Furthermore, women and girls can be at increased risk of gender-based violence (GBV) despite these compound challenges, women play a critical, although often overlooked, role in climate action.
This study examines the links between climate change and social cohesion, human security and gender in Jordan through approaches to local development, agriculture and management of natural resources that integrate an understanding of the gendered impacts of climate change on human security and social cohesion in Jordan. It offers a series of recommendations to implementers, donors and stakeholders engaged in climate action.
This research paper was developed by the Jordanian think tank the West Asia and North Africa (WANA) Institute in partnership with the international peacebuilding non-governmental organisation International Alert, with the support of the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (SIDA).
