Women are on the front-line of adaptation measures to climate change, and their ingenuity and resolve has resulted in many victories across the world. Yet they are a minority on every major committee of the United Nations’ own top climate change decision making group and they continue to be excluded from climate change solutions for agriculture.

Women2030 – an EU funded coalition of 5 global and regional women and gender networks working towards the
realization of the Sustainable Development Goals, SDGs, will bring together women and gender CSOs from Africa and
other parts of the world to Marrakech, to voice their needs and concerns in the discussion of global leaders, and to
demonstrate how women are agents of change in combating climate change rather than passive victims.
