The article suggests that mandating gender parity in climate change research funding may be a way to refocus research questions from large-scale planetary intervention or militarized responses. Topics discussed include research finding that including women in environmental decision-making makes a difference in policy outcomes. Also mentioned is the creation of more gender-balanced structures as a first step toward taking on the challenge of climate change.
