    Women Lead The Climate Crisis Fight

    Women are crucial to tackling the climate crisis—here’s why; Former UN climate chief Christiana Figueres, who helped orchestrate the landmark Paris Agreement five years ago, explains how women are disproportionately affected by global warming and why we need to be better represented at the tables where decisions are being made

    Christina Figueres, 15 December 2020 (Vogue)

    “..[W]omen in developing countries are disproportionately affected by climate change because women in those countries are traditionally entrusted with growing the food their families need, gathering firewood and getting water…[and their availability is] directly…[This means the] traditional roles that women have in developing countries are getting increasingly difficult…The importance of promoting gender equality was eventually included in the Paris Agreement…[The UN has] specific initiatives to improve representation…

    …[More women are] dedicating themselves to sustainability, including in areas such as biodiversity, conservation and food production… [As artists, authors, political leaders, engineers, and negotiators, women are spreading] through all the different parts of the climate movement……[Women often determine] what is purchased, how much is purchased and what people eat in their families…[If they] are more aware of the climate implications, they can make wiser decisions…[like] beginning to diminish the amount of red meat we eat and moving over to plant-based protein…” click here for more
