In the context of gender and climate change, focus is often laid on women as a particularly vulnerable group that is strongly affected by the impacts of climate change. While this is a highly important issue to address, it should not be neglected that other aspects of climate change and climate policy also have gender dimensions. The implementation of gender-sensitive climate policies can maximise potential co-benefits and synergies.

This handbook provides advice on how to successfully take into consideration these challenges and opportunities in the context of urban climate policy.
