This discussion paper sets out to analyse the relationship between gender and climate change in Viet Nam, and to recommend appropriate policy actions that will both address climate change and promote gender equality. It represents a collaborative effort by the UN and Oxfam in Viet Nam, with the involvement of a broad range of stakeholders. The paper argues that climate change adaptation and mitigation must not only reduce vulnerability and increase resilience to shocks and stresses, but must also contribute to achieving key development goals including gender equality. Development and climate change responses can only be equitable if they place women's empowerment and the tackling of gender inequality centre-stage. Opportunities to mitigate greenhouse gas emissions must also be gender sensitive and avoid worsening gender inequalities.
