Cate Owren, from Women’s Environment and Development Organization, explains how gender should be incorporated more fully into the convention, to ensure women have access to adaptation funds and other finance. She notes how, at 70%, “women make up most of the world’s poorest”, and explores why climate change is a marginalised and sector specific issue.
