About this event

Climate change devastates communities, degrades ecosystems, destroys livelihoods, and deepens existing gender and social inequalities.  However, land rights are a powerful tool to flip this script toward resilient environments and thriving communities. Increasingly, rural land users, including women, Indigenous Peoples, and youth are emerging as powerful change agents in advancing climate mitigation and adaptation.
