Women bear a disproportionate share of harms caused by climate change, especially those stemming from forced displacement due to extreme weather and other climate pressures, according to a new report. The CARE International report found climate-fueled cyclones, droughts, flooding and other large-scale climate disasters force people into overcrowded camps and shelters, where women  are targets of sexual violence. In one example cited in the “Evicted by Climate Change” report, women and girls displaced by Cyclone Idai, which hit Mozambique, Zimbabwe and Malawi in 2019, continue to face serious health threats because they lack access to basic services and sanitary products. “Climate change exacerbates existing gender inequalities, with women displaced on the frontlines of its impacts bearing the heaviest consequences,” CARE Secretary General Sofia Sprechmann Sineiro told Reuters.
