Working with Women and Girls to Centre Gender Equality in Climate Resilience

An Advocacy Brief from Eastern and Southern Africa ahead of the 66th Commission on the Status of Women (CSW)

As the 66th Commission on the Status of Women is about to start, we are joining our efforts to alert on the effects of disasters and climate change on Eastern and Southern Africa, and especially the disproportionate and devastating negative impacts they have on women and girls across the region. We also want to shed light on the critical work led by women and girls’ organizations as first responders and amplify their voices to call for bolder action and climate justice.
