The case for inclusive environmental decision-making: what works?
Join WFD for this side event as part of the NGO CSW66 Forum.
This panel will share learnings from various countries’ efforts to include women, particularly from indigenous communities and other minorities, into environmental decision-making processes and leadership.
Huge changes to all levels of society, politics and businesses are required to avoid the most devastating effects of climate change and environmental degradation. This means we need durable, effective and responsive democratic institutions, accountable systems of governance, and strong political will.
The event will consider how the three pillars of environmental democracy, transparency, participation and justice, are vital to empower those which are made most vulnerable by climate change. Speakers will be announced closer to the event date.
