    Climate change and state fragility in the Sahel

    Fride, 2015

    Decentralized climate change responses in Uganda: climate change adaptation lacks local government funding

    Advancing gender equality in the post-2020 climate regime

    International Institute for Environment and Development, 2015
    Research and evidence show that women and men are vulnerable to climate change to varying degrees, and that they experience and respond to it in different ways. Policies and actions that overlook the gendered impacts of and responses to climate change yield inequitable outcomes and exacerbate existing gender inequalities.

    Delivering climate and development finance to the poorest: intermediaries that ‘leave no-one behind’

    International Institute for Environment and Development, 2015
