Women's Empowerment for Climate Empowerment
United Nations Commission on the Status of Women Conference/NGO CSW 66 Virtual Forum
Environment attorney Amy Edwards will participate in a panel discussion on women's involvement in climate change solutions. Discriminatory gender norms and unequal access to land mean that women disproportionately experience the effects of climate change. During this session, speakers will offer tools and strategies for advancing women's legal rights, access to justice, economic security and meaningful participation in decision-making surrounding climate action.
