COP20: Usha Nair, All India Women’s Conference (AIWC)

COP20 (08/12/14) – Nair explains that women are especially victimised by climate change, and that there needs to be more focus on women as change agents for climate change. She argues that most mitigation actions need to start with women as they are the decision makers at the domestic level, and therefore women must be the main stakeholders in policy making. AIWC want the Indian Environment Minister to take up gender equality and human rights as a cross cutting element across all parts of the climate change agreement.
