Podcast: Gender and the Climate Crisis

Liz Cooke Podcast

As the climate crisis deepens, in this podcast Gender & Development’s assistant editor Liz Cooke talks to the two co-editors of the Climate Crisis issue of the journal.

The conversation takes in why the climate crisis is a gender issue, some of the ways it is affecting women in the Asia Pacific region, how a gender perspective is (or isn’t) being incorporated into climate change policy, and the overlap between the climate crisis and the current COVID 19 pandemic.

Taking part are:

  • Irene Dankelman, academic, author and consultant on gender, the environment, and climate change
  • Kavita Naidu, human rights lawyer and Climate Justice Programme Officer at the Asia Pacific Forum on Women, Law and Development
