This week, the reading assignment is: Dankelman, Chapters 1 – 5. Gender and Climate Change: An Introduction
Assignment: Provide an approximate 1200-word overview and explanation of the important concepts in the readings. Assume that you are writing for an uninformed reader that knows nothing about the topic and has not read what you read. Provide an introduction that gives the background of the resource you’re reviewing, so the reader will understand what they’re reading and why. Consider the following topics for inclusion in this week’s discussion:
– Are gender issues related to climate change? In what ways?
– Are security issues related to gender issues? In what ways?
– How do cities factor into the relationships between gender, race, climate change, and security?
– What are the lessons to be learned from case studies 5.7 and 5.8?
DO NOT list out the topics or questions and answer them. They are not meant to be all-inclusive, and your reader will not understand the context. Rather, give an overview of the author’s entire body of work, using the topics as guidelines. Ensure that you meet or exceed the 1200-word target, and that your paper meets APA presentation with no less than 4 peer reviewed sources to include: Gender and Climate Change: An Introduction
