Climate Change and Gender Issue-Women are Powerful Agents of Changing
Women are powerful agents of changing in the world. New research has established them as the custodian of traditional knowledge of food and creative innovation. However, when it comes to dealing with climate change and contributing to the confrontation, their role has not been used so far and such examples are not very popular. in Belize, female divers have helped restore coral reefs by training on sea tourism and ecological restoration.
In Tamil Nadu, India, women have improved traditional practices of threshing and have done winnowing to finalize the food. While women have still contributed to the field of adaptation and conservation practices, there are very limited examples of women in the energy sector as entrepreneurs and leaders in the field of energy.
Since women are more dependent on natural resources for their survival and livelihood. They have socially created roles and responsibilities, they are essential to safeguarding the fuel for the sake of cooking their families and for the sake of domestic purposes, in addition to heating, water and fodder for animals. Therefore, they are more sensitive to climate change compared to developed countries.
The effects of climate change, such as floods, droughts, extreme rainfall, dust storms, agricultural disruptions, heat waves etc., make the already existing inequalities strong and stimulate, making them the biggest victims of climate effects. Therefore, the risks and effects of climate change are different and therefore climate solutions should adopt gender-responsive approaches.
The purpose of such an approach is to identify women's various needs, knowledge, priorities in terms of their relationship with the environment, facilitate the representation of women in planning and different levels of governance and to form the same stakeholders in addressing climate influences.
According to the International Monetary Fund (IMF), there are laws in 90 percent of countries which limit women's economic inequality. Due to limited rights and limited access to natural resources, access to limited mobility, information and knowledge, economic status, behavior, and cultural norms, women have to face inequality and discrimination. In only 28 percent of the most developed countries in the world, women have equal legal rights on land, in the developing world, where women have access to most of the land through their relations with a male relative, on the absolute reality of inequality. The United Nation figures show that 75 percent of the people displaced by natural disasters or emergency situations are women and children. In countries like Bangladesh, in addition to other factors, the vulnerability of women for floods and storms is less where they are less likely to know swimming, and social and cultural reasons have reasonable access to shelters and relief camps.
Global climate regime
Women are powerful agents of changing
Global climate regimeand the issue of gender
The global climate system is a global framework that aims at regulating human activity with the global climate system to reduce global climate change. At a global level, women have fewer opportunities for economic participation than men, Less access to basic and higher education, more health and safety risks, and less political representation. Guaranteeing women's rights and giving them the opportunity to reach their full potential is not only important for gender equality but also to fulfill a wide range of international development goals. Authorized women and girls contribute to the health and productivity of their families, communities, and countries, which create a wave effect that benefits everyone. While understanding the various risks faced by men and women, the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), the global climate regime has still taken 25 years to identify gender inequality in climate prevention.
It was only in 2017 that in the annual Climate Summit in Bonn, Germany, with a focus on capacity building, sharing knowledge and communication, gender balance and women's leadership, coordination, gender-responsive implementation of the conference and a broad gender Work plan was prepared. Monitoring and reporting activities with Paris agreement and gender ideas. In the historic Paris Climate Agreement, which was to limit global warming within the safe temperature level, which was implemented in 2015, less than 30 percent of the delegation were women. In addition, some countries, including Mexico, Kiribati, Ethiopia, Nigeria, have talked about the vulnerabilities of women for climate effects in the National Climate Action Plans or Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC) under the Paris Agreement.
For example, gender-sensitive indicators should be included in the assessment, reporting, and evaluation of climate practices. Similarly, in the case of optimization and risk projects, vulnerability assessment should be taken into account for gender-based data so that specific vulnerabilities of women can be identified and addressed accordingly. Gender equilibrium is also necessary for the parties' delegations to climate summits and meetings for balanced solutions to climate change. Since climate rule is more 'bottom-up' in character, therefore design and completion of objectives of various components including gender-responsive approach The parties are left to do. At home, the parties should ensure gender analysis and balanced representation in their planning and administration processes.
At the global level, the role of governance can be more representative and convenient. An example might be in the field of women's access to climate-friendly technology, which is currently hampering a lot. Similarly, the balanced representation of women in the Governing Body of climate fund like the Green Climate Fund (GCF) will be an important step in their decision to effectively implement climate solutions.
Under the UNFCCC, the parties are now working towards the formulation of a rule book for the implementation of the Paris Agreement. Since the rulebook will determine the nature and design of climate activities in the future, it is important that gender-responsive approach reflects on components of the Paris accord, such as monitoring and review, favorable evaluation of climate actions, optimization and communication, finance, Loss, and damage.
How does climate change affect your appetite and sexual ability?
According to a study based on data from the National Climate Center collected from meteorological stations throughout the United States, climate change which causes more hot days, was one of the factors of lower birth rate in the United States. It is easy to guess how things are not ok when there is cold in the bedroom because the air is hot outside. The feeling of inconvenience can be called "rate of sexual relations". But studies suggest that high temperatures also harm reproductive health, by weakening sperm functions, reducing testosterone levels and interfering with menstrual processes. The researchers found that for every day the temperature rose above 27 degrees Celsius between 1931 and 2010, there was a 0.4 percent decline in the number of births nine months after that day. The effect of one of those days is a decline in the number of births equaling about 1165 children across the United States. Over a longer period, this could mean a decline in the number of births in the United States each year at 100,000 children, based on climate change models predicting that the number of hot days will actually exceed the current number.
I am not going to say it is the end of human civilization, but I would suggest it would be an addition to the cost of climate change.
