The authors look at how to bridge the gap between science, technology and social justice in their examination of the gender dimension of climate change. The authors argue for the need to understand in both analysis and policy the profound link between gender and climate change. They ask in the context of the current search for ecologically justice how to take a nuanced gender approach to in sustainable development policy. The authors conclude that effective and enduring solutions to climate change will have to come from those who have protected the environment ߝ indigenous peoples, women, peasant and family farmers, fisherfolk, forest dependent communities, youth and marginalised communities in the global South and North.
