Expert debate Women Tackling Climate Change
20 September 2018
15:30—18:00
(with the support of the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment of the Russian Federation, the Ministry of Agriculture of the Russian Federation, and the women’s committee of the Ministry of Agriculture of the Russian Federation)

According to the UN, 80% of all people who are displaced as a result of climate change are women. They bear the brunt of its consequences and are its first victims. Climate change threatens global food security and hampers efforts to eradicate poverty, making it a new risk for future generations. What is the role played by women today in taking crucial decisions with regards climate change, and what should it be in the future?

Topics for discussion:
  • The environmental risks associated with global climate change.
  • Efforts made by women to adapt to a changing climate and to mitigate its consequences.
  • Agriculture which has been optimized for the climate.
  • Biodiversity and preservation.
