About the event
Monday, December 4 at 4:30 pm GST/7:30 AM ET
Climate change is a health crisis, and as temperatures rise, health outcomes are at risk. In this panel event, our speakers will consider how governance, accountability systems, gender-responsive interventions, and innovative financing can reduce vulnerabilities.
Worldwide, there are clear gaps in the financing and leadership for climate adaptation. Often, women and other disadvantaged groups are excluded from the decision-making processes that directly impact their communities and themselves. This panel will highlight the initiatives that prioritize equitable and inclusive decision-making processes, innovative financial models that can bridge disparities, and the platforms and tools that can inform data-driven strategies.
Learn why climate resilience starts at the very beginning of a project and how a holistic approach can safeguard the health and livelihoods of those most vulnerable to climate change.
