Invest in Women to Tackle Climate Change and Conserve the Environment

Gender equality is critical to improving the environment and fighting for climate justice.

Although global awareness of climate change is rising, girls and women continue to be left out of the conversation. Given their roles in agriculture and in the collection and use of household resources, girls and women are not only well suited to find solutions to our environmental crises, they have a vested interest in doing so.

As Deliver for Good Partners and Allies turn towards CSW, let's use this opportunity to bring gender-sensitive climate approaches to the forefront. The tools and stories below offer inspiration and evidence to get you started.
