From Sub-Saharan Africa to the Maldives, women are leaders in the fight to combat the effects of climate change. They are using a variety of innovative solutions to mitigate the effects of a warming climate and to lead their communities towards a peaceful and sustainable future.
The Nobel Women’s Initiative is helping to draw attention to the impact of climate change on women and security and the important role of women in mitigating the impacts. We aim to strengthen the international network of women working for action on climate change. We support practitioners on the ground and work closely with partners including the Greenbelt Movement and the Mary Robinson Foundation for Climate Justice.
