"All genders differ in their needs, perception, attitudes, and vulnerability to the effects of climate change. This difference is notably true for how climate change affects health. Although some governmental and non-governmental organisations have begun to address the inequity of gender-based climate change effects, global efforts are falling short by failing to recognise the impact that gender has on health" (Van Daalen et al 2020, 44).
