Women’s Voices Are Heard at COP28

Our Climate

For far too long, climate discussions have under-included a crucial component: the perspectives, the stakes, and the potential contributions of women and girls.

For Rev. Dallas Conyers, Faith & JEDI Program Manager at Southeast Climate & Energy Network, women are natural leaders in climate solutions: “women are usually the foundation of our communities, so they could tell you the solutions that our states and governments need to be taking on.”

At the same time, Jacqueline Kimeu, Energy & Climate Change Coordinator of WWF Kenya, reiterates that improving climate-related issues can help improve quality of life for women, and this, she believes, can help change the world:

“In most African countries, we find that 80% of households don’t have access to electricity. If there’s no electricity, these young girls go home…Renewable energy can keep women, can keep young girls in school, building their resilience.”
