Oct 19, 2021 | 8:30 AM - 9:30 AM


Climate change has differentiated and disproportionate negative effects on women as a reflection of pre-existing inequalities within societies worldwide. Women represent the great majority of climate refugees and face higher risk of climate-related mortality. It is paramount for all the climate solutions and related initiatives to promote gender equality and have a positive impact on women. Moreover, to preserve the planet we have to rethink the way of living and consuming, by taking into account women’s issues and expectations. The high-level speakers will provide best practices they have put in place to mainstream a gender approach in their climate action. What kind of gender-responsive measures are stakeholders developing? How can governments support this positive dynamic to address the effects of climate change?
