Women empowered to withstand climate change effects

“A few years ago, climate change was considered gender-neutral, which works on climate issues,” states Naoko Ishii, chief executive of the non-profit Global Environment Facility.

"But when we did a gender analysis, gender neutral actually mean gender-ignorant,” Ishii added.

To this end, in recognising the connection between women's rights and climate change, Greenpeace has been working on multiple solar energy projects that assist women at community levels to implement simple, effective and affordable sustainable solutions in rural areas in developing countries, IPS News Agency reported.
