This study analyses existing literature and empirical data (including rainfall, temperature, health and nutrition, and climate disaster data) to investigate the difference in gender impacts of climate-related hazards in South Sudan. The authors argue that in South Sudan, women are more exposed to climate change disasters, have fewer resilience assets, rely more on natural resources, have high rate of illiteracy, low skills and low access to professional employment, and are therefore more vulnerable to climate change calamities than men.

They recommend that key government institutions mainstream climate change and gender equality measures, in order to design policies that equally empower women and men to become resilient to climate change impacts.
