Climate and Biodiversity – acting by integrating justice and gender

Watch the recording of the vent from 4:30

Ronan Dantec, President of the Climate Chance Association, spoke in this event organised by WECF.

The climate and biodiversity crises are interdependent and disproportionately impact women and gender minorities. Actions and policies to protect the climate and biodiversity must therefore be carried out jointly, and integrate gender equality, in order to be fair and efficient. Through the testimonies of the laureates of the Gender and Climate Solutions Prize, and the experience of citizens and politicians, we will illustrate the best practices implemented at local, national and international levels.
