The CLEO Institute created ‘Empowering Resilient Women and Girls, The Power of WE’ – a program for women and adolescent girls to connect the dots between climate change, health risks, economy, emergency preparedness, and civic engagement.
Women, who in most cases are first responders in crises or decision-makers at home, are more likely than men to be affected by the changing climate. Studies show that women and girls are 14 times more likely than men to die during a disaster and extreme weather events. These gender differences are directly linked to women’s economic and social rights. However, women and girls are pivotal to addressing this issue successfully. As bread-winners, care givers, and community builders we can be great agents of change. The opportunity lies in empowering women and girls to be more resilient and provide tools and resources to strengthen their leadership in their communities.
