Women key to fight against climate change
Women are more likely to die as a consequence of drought, flooding or heat waves. And — as long as political and economic power lies with men — they will continue to find it more difficult adapt to dramatic changes in their environment resulting from climate change, says climate and gender activist, Ndivile Mokoena.
Mokoena works for GenderCC, an organization that promotes gender equality in climate protection worldwide. The South African engages internationally and in her home country to get women involved in climate policy and projects.
In Johannesburg, Mokoena helps educate women in urban farming practises, which she hopes will not only help them adapt to climate change but will also increase their independence.
