Though climate change is the single most urgent issue humanity faces, we do not experience its effects equally. The adverse effects of climate change are inequitably distributed, and those who suffer most are often those who bear the least responsibility for the current climate crisis. Women and girls are particularly vulnerable. Half a billion women and girls survive on less than a $1.90 per day, and many—particularly those in the Global South—have livelihoods that are directly tied to and dependent upon the land

Women and girls often serve as families’ primary food producers, fuel collectors, and water suppliers. Yet, despite their close relationship with the land, they are routinely denied access to the resources and decision-making power needed to adapt to and cope with environmental challenges. That is why ICONIQ Impact launched the Climate Equity Co-Lab—our first-ever collaborative philanthropy fund supporting organizations at the intersection of climate change, gender equity, and poverty.
