“98% of all displacements last year were related to climate and weather-related events. Everyday there are impacts already occurring which are pushing communities into more and more conflictual situations.
We know that the impacts that climate change brings are not gender neutral … women will be worst-affected.
But we also know that women are 50% of the world’s population and we’re made of pretty tough stuff, and we have power, together, to affect change everywhere – in our households, in our communities, nationally and internationally. ” – Farhana Yamin
