Blended Finance & the Gender - Climate Nexus

Authored by Convergence

Women are disproportionately impacted by climate change: they are overrepresented in the informal sector; have less access to finance and education; and are more exposed to gender-based violence in the aftermath of climate-risk events.

This brief considers how blended finance has addressed the gender-climate change nexus, and also presents insights drawn from interviews conducted with key stakeholders. The Convergence database has recorded 63 blended transactions focusing on SDG 5 (Gender Equality) and one or more of the following SDGs: 7 (Clean Energy), 11 (Sustainable Cities), 12 (Responsible Consumption), 13 (Climate Action), 14 (Life Below Water) or 15 (Life on Land). This represents aggregate financing of USD 6 billion.
