Climate change is destabilizing communities around the world, worsening conditions like water and food insecurity, and creating economic hardship, humanitarian crises and political fragility—all of which can weaken social cohesion, deepen gender inequality, and provoke conflict. Women are on the frontlines of the climate crisis and have a crucial role to play in addressing these challenges. This session will feature women leaders from across the Global South who will share their experiences building climate resilience in fragile contexts and highlight best practices to support inclusive efforts.
