Gender refers to the social roles and relations between women and men, which include different responsibilities of women and men in a given culture and location. Even though gender has become one of the themes of analysis in development policy discourses yet it received little emphasis in climate change policies. By reviewing literature related to climate change and gender issue this paper finds that women are more vulnerable to climate disasters than men through their socially constructed roles and responsibilities, and their relatively poorer and more economically vulnerable position, especially in the developing world. .
