Climate Change, Intersectionality, and GBA+ in British Columbia

2021 – Dr. Dawn Hoogeveen, Kerri Klein, Jordan Brubacher, Dr. Maya K. Gislason

How climate change impacts diverse populations, including those who are marginalized, is not always obvious. This report draws on a Gender-based Analysis Plus (GBA+) lens to examine how considerations of sex, gender, race, ethnicity, age, and mental or physical ability (among other identity factors) intersect to influence how different populations in B.C. are affected by climate change. It includes a set of tangible ways for policy makers, interested actors, and community partners to reduce the impacts of climate change. This includes working to more fully incorporate GBA+ and intersectional principles into thinking and planning.
