gender equality and women's economic empowerment

Measures that address the impacts of climate change, disasters and environmental degradation would be ineffective if they do not recognise the agency of people at risk and support them to acknowledge and apply their own knowledge and context specific solutions. The inclusion and empowerment women, youth, people with disabilities in development processes is vital to ensuring local solutions that address the needs of all.
