Session Description

Climate change has a disproportionate impact on women due to gender roles. It reduces women's ability to be financially independent and has an overall negative impact on the social and political rights of women, especially in the developing world.

Yet women play a crucial role in climate change adaptation and mitigation. Because women see and experience climate change differently, they have a valuable understanding of how societies can adapt to changing conditions and devise practical solutions. They remain, however, a largely untapped resource.

During this webinar, speakers will discuss the importance of understanding climate change as a product of social and economic inequities facing women and other marginalized populations.
