Empowering women = better climate solutions

UN Climate Change (UNFCCC) is today highlighting a few very good reasons why women need to be empowered in the struggle to solve the climate crisis.
Quoted from UN Climate Change:
"Women make up nearly half of the agricultural labor force in developing countries. When provided with the same access to resources as men, women can increase their agricultural yields by 20 to 30 percent. This boost in productivity not only improves total agricultural output by 2.5 to 4 percent, but it can also help reduce world hunger by 12 to 17 percent, according to the UN.


Empowering women in agriculture can also have a positive impact on climate adaptation. By providing appropriate technology and resources, we can promote more sustainable farming and conservation practices. And by reducing poverty, we can help individuals better adapt to the effects of climate change.

Investing in women and girls has far-reaching benefits for communities and countries.
In fact, research shows that countries with a high representation of women in parliament are more likely to ratify international environmental treaties.
