The European Commission with the African, Caribbean and Pacific Group of states will present a conference on "Stronger Women for a better climate" at the European Development Days on June 5.

Women are disproportionately vulnerable to the impacts of climate change: their rights and socio-economic status are not equal to those of men, and they have less voice and influence than men in shaping policies and prioritising how climate finance is used. Empowerment of women is an important ingredient in fighting climate change and building climate resilience as women are primary agents of change and effective risk managers. Their role is fundamental to create solid basis for a climate proofed development. Through a series of concrete examples from international, national, local actors and climate activists, the session will explore how women's voices and actions can be heard and seen to influence climate change policy making at all levels.
