Event: Live Online Chat - Supporting Women's Contribution to the Fight against Climate Change (26 March 2014)

Live Online Chat - Supporting Women's Contribution to the Fight against Climate Change

Women play a front line role in managing energy, waste, and water resources and are uniquely positioned to contribute in the fight against climate change. Yet new research funded by ADB shows women are rarely considered in the disbursal of multi-million dollar global climate funds.
  • In a changing climate finance landscape, how can we help women gain better access to finance and national institutions deliver it in a more effective, efficient and inclusive way?
  • How can the Green Climate Fund and other sources of climate financing reach more women and help harness their potential to be agents of change for effective mitigation initiatives?
Join Social Development Specialist Linda Adams and Viet Nam Country Specialist Lauren Sorkin for a discussion on promoting climate finance for mitigation measures that benefit women.
When: 08:30-10:00 Manila time/00:30-02:00 GMT : 26 March 2014
Share your views in advance and send your questions by email or through Facebook or Twitter.
Access the live online chat on 26 March on the Asian Development Blog.
