Women and minorities are not well represented in the scientific fields in which they work, nor are they considered when designing and delivering services for resilience to climate change. Most studies do not include gender-disaggregated data or consider how climate information impacts different groups of people. This gap is despite overwhelming evidence that women and minority populations, including indigenous peoples, are able to react, respond, and recover to climate-related shocks in very different ways.
The goal of this session is to showcase work that includes gender or underrepresented groups in their climate service research, design or delivery. In particular, we will consider talks that use remote sensing and or geographic information systems (GIS) to address gendered or minority development issues. These papers will represent the forefront of climate services development and showcase replicable methods for gender and social inclusion in research and applications.
