Interactions between SDG13 (climate action) and SDG5 (gender equity)

In 2015 the United Nations approved the seventeen Sustainable Developments Goals (SDGs) aiming to outline the path to build “a better and more sustainable future for all”.  SDG13 calls for climate action while SDG5 emphases on gender equity. Both SDGs are intimately interconnected. Particularly gendered impacts of climate change have extensively been described in the literature, with women and girls being often more vulnerable to climate change due to differential risk exposure and adaptive capacities, social norms and inequality in the access to resources and livelihoods options. While there has been much theoretical reflection and empirical research centered on the vulnerability of marginalized groups, less attention has been devoted to assessing if and how adaptation and mitigation options contribute to, or hinder SDG5. In this special issue we want to shed light into how and to what extend adaptation and mitigation responses in different sectors interact with SDG5. We also want to elaborate on other gendered impacts related to mitigation and adaptation to climate change not gathered by the sub-goals and indicators developed to assess SDG5, but that definitely contribute to increase (or reduce) gender equity. We welcome both literature review and empirical papers that contribute to advance the topics above.
