Call for Papers on Gender and Adaptation in the Global South

Some exciting news from PLOS Climate: we are reopening our call for papers for a guest-edited Collection on the theme of Gender and Adaptation in the Global South! Submissions are due by 30th August 2024.

Recent climate change-related events across the world and their impacts on poorer and marginalised communities have given a new impetus to the issue of climate justice. Gender rights activists, researchers and practitioners have emphasized that there is no climate justice without gender justice, as they are intrinsically related. PLOS Climate calls for submissions for a new Collection to understand the status of work towards achieving gender-just, climate-resilient development pathways for the Global South, including successes and ongoing challenges. We invite submissions of Research Articles and proposals for Opinions and Reviews based on the following sub-themes or the overall theme of the Collection:

  • The intersection of gender and social inequalities within climate change discourse
  • The science-policy interface for gender and climate justice
  • Critical understanding of the role of gender in climate justice
  • Gender transformative adaptation
  • Solutions-based approaches to gender and climate justice

The Collection will be guest-edited by:

  • Rachel Bezner Kerr, Professor of Global Development, Cornell University, USA
  • Georgina Cundill Kemp, Senior Program Specialist, International Development Research Centre, Canada
  • Anjal Prakash, Research Director and Adjunct Associate Professor, Bharti School of Public Policy, Indian School of Business, India
  • Debra Roberts, Co-Chair of IPCC Working Group II and head of the Sustainable and Resilient City Initiatives Unit in eThekwini Municipality, Durban, South Africa
  • Edmond Totin, Associate Professor at Ecole de Foresterie Tropicale, Université Nationale d’Agriculture du Benin, Benin

Corresponding authors affiliated to institutions in Research4Life countries (Groups A and B) can automatically publish at no cost. Authors from other regions can find details of fees and fee assistance options here, and check whether their institution has an Open Access partnership with PLOS here.
