Climate change impacts women disproportionately to men, and these impacts are amplified in vulnerable populations where communities have fewer resources to recover from and adapt to climate disasters. In the aftermath of the Bangladesh cyclone in 1991, for example, five times as many women died compared to men. In the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami 70% of the fatalities were women.Gender inequalities extend to areas that are affected by other climate change impacts like deforestation, desertification, and higher temperatures.
