Addressing the 24 hour cycle of urban risk: Gendered perspectives on non-conflict violence and climate change impacts in cities

The pilot project is conducted in partnership with the University of Nottingham. The study examines how non-conflict violence and climate change risks overlap and compound vulnerability in low-income communities and how the experiences and perceptions of such risks vary with gender across contexts in the city. The pilot aims to develop methodologies and concepts from the fields of urban climate adaptation and urban violence, explore addressing complex data and understand multiple inter-connections, and establish a baseline for future research. By thinking about the nature, distribution and drivers of vulnerability, and systemic risks related to gender, violence and climate change, it will inform possibilities for change in policy and practice. The research is funded by the Global Challenges Research Fund (GCRF).
