Online resources: Summary: "This book examines the intersecting social dimensions of climate change in the rural and resource contexts of the global north. Bringing together leading feminist researchers and practitioners from three countries-Australia, Canada, and Spain-this collection documents gender relations in fossil fuel, mining, and extractive industries, in land-based livelihoods, in approaches for inclusive environmental policy, and in the lived experience of climate hazards. The book includes voices and experiences that have not been prioritized in formal policies-for example, women in agriculture, Indigenous women, immigrant women, and women in male-dominated professions. Their contributions highlight the importance of diverse perspectives for a fuller understanding of climate change impacts, more equitable processes and strategies for climate change adaptation, and a more welcoming climate future. This book will be of great interest to students and scholars of gender studies, environmental studies, environmental sociology, human geography and sustainability science. It will also provide important insights for planners and decision makers and help them improve their understanding and practices"--PPN: PPN: 1882641159Package identifier: Produktsigel: ZDB-4-NLEBK | BSZ-4-NLEBK-KAUB
