Social challenges

To make the world more climate-resilient empower women


Although disproportionately affected by climate change, women and girls are denied a proper role in fighting it: discriminatory laws, social norms, and practices hinder their engagement in climate-resilient agriculture, disaster risk reduction, and the transition to renewable energy. These not only impede women's own climate resilience but also have long-lasting consequences on entire communities. Empowering women as agents of change is crucial for enhancing our collective capacity to tackle the climate emergency, for the benefit of all.
