This year, together with FAO and The Rockefeller Foundation, CGIAR will co-host the first ever pavilion dedicated to food and agriculture. The CGIAR GENDER Platform contributes to an event on how to help women and youth build resilience against climate change.

Monday, November 14, 13:00-14:00 EET

This event will highlight why women and youth are more exposed to climate change and how climate adaptation strategies and climate-smart agriculture can help achieve resilience, gender equality and social equity outcomes at once.

Speakers will share insights on gender and climate hotspot mapping, the Gender Empowerment Index and explore the enabling policy and financial environment to increase gender equality and social inclusion in climate resilience.
