Climate change can be violent, expressed through immediate weather events, such as floods and storms, and slower, long term violence, such as droughts that impact women’s everyday lives and livelihoods and are exacerbated by other pressures and conflicts. However, climate change has not been explicitly connected to the UN women, peace, and security agenda. The likely reason is that the gender implications of the climate issue have only recently gained salience on the international climate agenda, through the dominant framing of women’s vulnerability. This chapter evokes the ecofeminism argument that climate change is part of a destructive patriarchal politico-economic structure, which implies there can be no separate solution to concerns for peace, equality, or climate issues; all have to be included in a reassessment of humans’ relation to the earth. It suggests that the human security focus provides a more inclusive way to connect the aspirations for peace with climate concerns. To that end, I argue that employing the human security lens as a starting point can help in taking seriously how individual women experience the bottom-up the effects of climate events.
