Climate Leaders’ Summit: Women Kicking It on Climate
Around the world, women lead the fight against climate change. These leaders have shaped ambitious climate policies and work hard to bring everyone, like more women and girls, in the discussion.
In developing countries, women and girls are at risk when it comes to climate change. Women farmers make up 45 to 80 percent of all food production, based on the region; and traditional food sources become more unpredictable because of climate change. This impacts their ability to feed and provide for their families. But women also play a leading role to help with finding solutions to climate change. Progress on climate change needs more women at the table.
Minister McKenna hosted a high-level summit for women climate leaders. This summit offered a chance to come up with real solutions that will advance the Paris Agreement for the future of our kids and grandkids.
