About this Research Topic

Submission closed.

At present, less than 30% of researchers worldwide are women. Long-standing biases and gender stereotypes are discouraging girls and women away from science-related fields, and STEM research in particular. Science and gender equality are, however, essential to ensure sustainable development as highlighted by UNESCO. In order to change traditional mindsets, gender equality should be promoted, stereotypes defeated, and girls and women encouraged to pursue careers in research and academia, with special attention to promoting females in STEM careers

Frontiers in Climate is proud to offer this platform to promote the work of women scientists, across all fields of Climate and Decision Making. The work presented here highlights the diversity of research performed across the entire breadth of Climate and Decision-Making research and presents advances in theory, empirical observation, and methodology with applications to compelling problems. Some themes to consider for our prospective women authors are, but not limited to:
• Climate modeling
• Mitigation analysis
• Climate adaptation
• Climate governance and financing
• Decision-making under uncertainty

In addition to highlighting climate research by women, the issue will highlight research at the intersection of gender and climate. A changing climate will affect countries differently, when considering different mean temperatures around the world. Climate change also has a disparate impact on females on the societal and household level. This raises serious questions about fairness and justice. Females are traditionally the caretakers and household heads that face a disproportionate burden of sustainability pledges. As economic gains and losses from a warming earth are distributed unequally within society, ethical imperatives lead to the pledge to redistribute economic opportunities to parts of society that lose from global warming in the quest for climate justice. Research is needed about the empirical facts on the ground, in different regions of the world. Issues of climate mitigation and adaptation, and their relation to everyday life seem to be obvious topics. We also need to know more about visions for the future, and discursive constructions of climate that position women in specific ways, silence them, or give them voice.

Some themes to consider for our prospective authors (all genders welcome) are, but not limited to:
• Gender studies in climate;
• Discourse analysis in climate research;
• Ethnographic approaches to climate research;
• Disparate climate impacts on females accentuated in the developing world;
• Household economics and dynamics shifts due to global warming;
• Comparative studies across different regions in the world.
