Gender Based Climate Change Budget Integration Index

Raunak Kalra worked with the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) to develop a new index that will measure the impact of climate change on the basis of gender.  The UNDP uses the Climate Change Budget Integration Index (CCBII) to measure the integration of climate change budget into a country’s public finance system. The CCBII has been received well and is now open to include indicators that measure the integration of climate budget into policies, institutions, and gender development programs.  Since climate change impacts women and children relatively more severely, Raunak developed a framework that quantifies this disproportionate effect.
