UNFCCC CLIMATE CHIEF CHRISTIANA FIGUERES:   "THERE NEEDS TO BE A MOVE AWAY FROM THE "EXPLICIT MALE FOCUS OF POLICY. “ It is critical that that new economy not only re-establish the relationship between man and nature, which has been thoroughly not respected, but it also re-establishes the balance that is needed between the genders.” http://www.rtcc.org/2014/08/04/christiana-figueres-climate-deal-must-bring-gender-equality/

ARE WOMEN OUR BEST HOPE FOR FIGHTING CLIMATE CHANGE? 

The need for women’s voices to be heard becomes most vividly apparent when considering the fact that indigenous women are struggling to protect and retain control of the very natural resources that they depend on — which are directly threatened by climate change.

“We are seeing a sort of ecological violence that highly affects indigenous women,” Lopez tells me. “The damage that corporations are inflicting on natural resources have an impact on the life of indigenous women — a very, very direct impact. We see a lot of sexual and reproductive health problems specific to indigenous women — and not men — that are linked to pesticides, toxins, contamination of water. If environmental rights are not guaranteed, the human rights of indigenous women are not going to be guaranteed, either.”  http://www.globalpossibilities.org/are-women-our-best-hope-for-fighting-climate-change/

BUILDING UNITY AND SOLIDARITY TO EFFECT A SYSTEM CHANGE. Women from all the corners of the Southern African region descended on Bulawayo to participate in a parallel of the SADC Heads of State Summit, the People Summit. They have converged to share their experiences on how they have been affected either by decisions made by governments with little consultations with the people or the inherited colonial agro-mining complex, which continues to grab land for extractive purposes. More importantly, the women have gathered to build and strengthen their solidarity, forge strong alliances and commit to the struggle to push for a system of changehttp://viacampesina.org/en/index.php/news-from-the-regions-mainmenu-29/1649-sadc-building-unity-and-solidarity-to-effect-a-system-change

Wise women knowledge is necessary to solve climate change and save the world.

Caroline Ivy's curator insight, May 18, 2015 3:00 PM

This article is about how women are greatly affected by climate change. 

 

Women make up a large segment of the workforce, especially in developing countries. Climate change alters the environment, and women who eke out a living farming face even more challenges besides running a house, raising children, and facing descrimination for their gender. It's poignant that the main causes of global warming (greater emission of greenhouse gases) are Occuring the farthest away from those who are suffering the consequences. Women involved in business in developing countries can give accurate testimonies to the effects of climate change. That's why gender equality and solving climate change go hand-in-hand.
