What about gender justice investing?

Ise Bosch

Regarding an otherwise excellent special feature on resilience investing, I was missing a discussion of gender justice grantmaking/investing (besides mentioning SEWA). As Mary Robinson, president of the Mary Robinson Foundation – Climate Justice, recently reminded us (in an IHRFG telebriefing on Climate Change and Climate Justice), women are not only disproportionately affected by climate change but also in a better position to strengthen resilience, IF they get the chance. Both strategies – funding women’s NGOs and gender mainstreaming all funding – seem especially called-for in this field.
