Women for Change Breakfast – Climate Change & Women

Date:
Time: 7:45 am  to  9:45 am

Climate change is responsible for some of the worst natural disasters of our generation – earthquakes in Nepal and Ecuador, the floods in India and droughts in Ethiopia. 

Women and children are especially vulnerable to the effects of climate change as they face social, economic and political barriers that limit their coping capacity. However, whilst women are at a much higher risk of losing their livelihoods and struggling to provide for their families, they are also effective agents of change who have the power to become leading figures in this area. So how can we make use of our skills and networks to support organisations working on these issues?
