COP29 Azerbaijan

Climate warning

COP29 appoints no women to 28-member climate committee. You're okay? We don't bother you too much?

Do I need to tell more? COP29 organising committee will consist of 28 men and no women, according to President Ilham Aliyev. The majority of the committee members are government officials, including the head of the state security service and the head of Azerbaijan’s state gas distribution network. (lol)
I guess there are no women in Azerbaijan? How are we supposed to solve the climate crisis without including half of the world's population?
SHE Changes Climate has reacted to the announcement:
“This is a regressive step in the journey towards gender parity in climate; but there is still time for change. We ask for equal representation in the governance of this year’s climate talks because climate change affects the whole world, not half of it.”
(As a reminder, COP28 had 63% of women on its organising committee.)
You thought COP28 was bad? Well, let's fasten your seatbelts for COP29 in the oil state and big fan of gender equality, Azerbaijan!

    Encouraging to read that the huge reaction to this made the organizers change their minds. https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2024/jan/19/women-cop29-climate-summit-committee-backlash

      Excluding women from such a crucial decision-making body sends a harmful message that their voices and perspectives are not valued in addressing the climate crisis.

        This lack of gender diversity in the COP29 organizing committee is disappointing and highlights the need for more inclusion and representation of women in leadership roles.

                            The lack of gender diversity in COP29's organizing committee, with 28 men and no women, is disappointing. Inclusivity is crucial in addressing complex global issues like climate change. A more diverse representation ensures a broader range of perspectives and solutions. The COP process should strive for greater gender balance to strengthen its commitment to equitable and inclusive climate action.🌐🤝 #ClimateRepresentation #InclusivityMatters

                              @rukia_ahmed_abdi And to imagine the kind of heavy lifting that women are involved in addressing the climate discussion and the sheer lack of commitment to include them is just unbelievable.

                                    At the moment, COPs is loosing its meaning. Women are naturally care givers and they make compassionate decisions and will not allow the future of their generations to be destroyed. The phasing out of fossil fuels is the thorn in the flesh.
