Investing in Women to Tackle Climate Change
Today, world leaders are meeting in Bonn, Germany for the beginning of COP23 -- the United Nations Climate Change Conference -- to discuss the impact of climate change on our world. But while discussions of decreased carbon emissions and fossil fuels look toward climate mitigation efforts to benefit future generations, we must also look to the millions affected by climate change today.
 
Although climate change impacts everyone, girls and women bear the greatest day-to-day burden due to the cultural and societal roles they typically play. From collecting water and cooking fuel, to farming the land and preparing meals,  girls and women experience the impact of climate change and environmental degradation across their health, food security, nutrition, and economic earning.
 
Now is the time for gender-sensitive climate policies and investments that address the realities of women’s needs.  Girls and women have a vested interest in these issues and must have a voice in deciding how best to address them.
