Non-economic Multiplicity of Loss and Damage: Whisper of Coastal Women in Bangladesh

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Climate change affects everyone, but poor and marginalised people bear the brunt of its
most adverse impacts. Climate change can have a significant effect on biological diversity,
threatening the livelihoods of people who are dependent on natural resources, thus
leading to or exacerbating poverty. Too often the stresses of threatened livelihoods add to
the burdens of girls and women – often with long-term, long-lasting negative effects or
even tragic outcomes.
This paper discuss three aspects of non-economic loss and damage linked to climate
change that specifically – and negatively – affect women and girls in Bangladesh: child
marriage; impaired health; and extra workloads.
