  • Omar Basyouny The American University in Cairo


In an effort to help address one of the major issues the world is facing today, this paper attempts to find climate change mitigation strategies which we can develop to limit climate change and reduce our carbon footprint, through addressing gender inequality, another prominent global issue. Hence, the purpose of this paper is to try to find innovative and non-ordinary solutions to climate change, mainly through addressing gender inequality and interconnecting it to the climate catastrophe. Further, this research plays a role in bringing attention to the hidden effects of climate change that is not being paid attention to, such as sexual violence, human trafficking, and child marriage. Finally, findings prove that indeed gender inequality and climate change should be addressed concurrently as each of these significant global issues becomes vital in helping us effectively address the other.
