Gender, Climate Change and Food Security

05.03.2013 | Bonn

Climate change is coming – and it will primarily affect the poorest regions of the world. Women in particular will feel its effects: long periods of drought lead to water shortages, soil degradation jeopardizes the basic food needs of the family, and natural disasters often cause a greater number of female casualties.

In addition, men and women are not on an equal footing when it comes to dealing with climate change: although women have many possibilities to actively proceed against the effects of climate change, such as developing alternative strategies to ensure food security, their knowledge often remains unutilized. How can this be amended?

We cordially invite you to a public event during the GIZ Gender Week

You can expect an exciting program with discussion partners reporting from gender projects in Africa, Asia and Latin America.
In a panel discussion, Tanja Gönner, Chair of the GIZ Management Board, will be conversing with Christiana Figueres, Executive Secretary of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC).

Starting at 7 pm, you are invited to network, accompanied by live music by the local rock band Basement Two.
