This article will analyze three legal regimes that serve the protection of the environment, and which recognize the importance of the gender dimension of equality – the regime of climate change, the regime of biodiversity and the regime of desertification seen through the context of disability. The relationship between intersectional discrimination of women with disabilities and environmental protection will be examined. The paper will explain the concept of intersectional discrimination. Also, it will examine which model of approach to disability is appropriate when it comes to improving the position and empowerment of women with disabilities. It will be considered whether and in which way the international instruments related to the legal regimes of climate change, biodiversity and desertification regulate the position of persons with disabilities. People with disabilities are one of the most vulnerable categories when it comes to the effects of climate change. Women and girls with disabilities are in an even more unenviable position. Forced migrations due to the harmful effects of climate change, which will certainly happen in the future, will be especially difficult for this category of people, so it can be said that this group of people is discriminated against. The second part of the paper will present proposals on how it is possible to strengthen and improve the position of women and girls with disabilities in these regimes.
