Women And Water: On The Frontline Of Climate Change

Female teacher giving lecture on water in classroom with girls.

As stewards of water, women and girls confront the impacts of climate change every day yet in many cases lack decision-making power to influence climate finance commitments to water security. These impacts are deepening the devastating impact of widespread gender inequality.

‘Women And Water: On The Frontline Of Climate Change’ is a forthcoming webinar by the United Nations University - Institute for Water Environment and Health (UNU-INWEH), WaterAid, and The Canadian Coalition on Climate Change and Development (C4D).

The webinar will include statements and presentations (more details on speakers coming soon) which demonstrate water security evidence, WASH as a pathway for gender equality, and the essential element of gender responsive climate finance that includes investment in water, sanitation, and hygiene.

The webinar will be held on 12 October 2022, at 10.00 (EDT)/14.00 (UTC).
