UN Women supports UN Member States as they set global standards for achieving gender equality, and works with governments and civil society to design laws, policies, programmes and services needed to ensure that the standards are effectively implemented and truly benefit women and girls worldwide. It works globally to make the vision of the Sustainable development goals, a reality for women and girls and stands behind women’s equal participation in all aspects of life.
The Asia Pacific region is one of the most vulnerable to climate change impacts and disasters in the world. According to the World Risk Report1 , 10 out of the 15 most at risk countries are located in this region. Asia and the Pacific accounts for over 90 per cent of all global deaths from disasters, where 70 per cent of the disasters are climate related. While climate change will spare no one, evidence shows that the infringement of human rights as a consequence of climate change is not equally distributed. Certain social groups within the region experience more severe impacts than others.
