Creating space for transformative conversations
Integrating Gender Equality in Climate Adaptation - Wednesday, June 5th
Roundtable on key gaps and opportunities from local to global
The global narrative on adaptation is shifting to include a more holistic representation of risk and pathways to resilience, including acknowledgment of the roles of health and social equity. Gender is one of the key factors that determine vulnerability, response options, and resilience among populations facing interlinked global challenges such as increasing devastation caused by natural hazards, food insecurity, migration and climate change.
This event will bring together gender and adaptation experts from Canada and abroad to discuss and unpack key gaps and opportunities for integrating gender equality in the process to adapt to global challenges and increase community resilience. Reception to follow. Light refreshments will be served.
