WOMEN AND THE ENVIRONMENT

Is Climate Change a gender issue?  What is the Connection?  A UN Report tells us that “Women commonly face higher risks and greater burdens from the impacts of climate change in situations of poverty, and the majority of the world’s poor are women. Women’s unequal participation in decision-making processes and labor markets compound inequalities and often prevent women from fully contributing to climate-related planning, policy-making and implementation.”

Three experts address climate change and gender questions.  You’ll be surprised by the answers.

Alyssa Fischer, a climate & sustainability expert with a focus on urban climate challenges and the inclusion of equity into climate conversations. She currently works as a Policy Analyst at the International Energy and was formerly a consultant with the Cities Unit of UN Environment where she is researching neighborhood sustainability transformations in cities around the world.

Dr. Cara Maesano, a scientist and researcher in environmental epidemiology and exposure science at INSERM/Sorbonne University, focusing on how the physical environment affects public health. She is part of C40's Women4Climate mentorship program, through which she investigates and educates on issues relating to the health impacts of Climate Change.

Dana Powers, environment journalist specializing on renewable energy  and Chair of the Democrats Abroad France Environment Policy Group
