Lab 10 - Women's power to act for the climate transition
9 November 2021, 14.30-16.30 - Aubette

The adverse effects of climate change have immediate and long-lasting implications for gender equality. Both men and women are vulnerable to extreme weather events and natural disasters but, due to pre-existing inequalities in different spheres of life, women suffer disproportionally from environmental damage.
The effectiveness of climate-related strategies would improve greatly if women’s experience and knowledge were mainstreamed in the process of policy development, but due to widespread underrepresentation of women in parliaments and other decision-making bodies at all levels, it is yet to be achieved. Despite the challenges, women around the world continue to find ways to be agents of change, preserving the local environment and strengthening the resilience of their communities. So, what do women already do to advance the climate transition? How can we support their engagement in climate-decision making? And what are the ways to integrate gender dimension into climate policies?
