Online event – Agrifood systems facing climate change in the MENA region: gender equality for better resilience
February 22, 2022
As part of their collaboration, CIHEAM, FAO and UfM have decided to mark the celebration of IWD 2022 with a joint event, focused on the MENA region and on promising solutions to support women’s empowerment and climate adaptation through synergies.
They will bring into the debate their research, governance and policy perspectives and experiences. The theme of the International Women’s Day (IWD) 2022 – Changing Climates: Equality today for a sustainable tomorrow – recognizes and celebrates the contribution of women and girls to building a sustainable future.
The event aims to raise awareness on the gender-differentiated impacts of climate change on agri-food systems, and on the interventions that are needed to address them, build women and girls’ resilience, and unleash their potential to mitigate climate change and adapt to its impacts.
