COP28 Press release: Media action- Two sides of the same coin: Climate and Gender Justice

Time: 4th December 2023, 16h00

Location UPDATED: Action Zone 9 (B1 near the entrance)

 This visual stunt will showcase calls for critical investment in gender-transformative climate finance.

The climate emergency is deepening gender inequalities. Extractive economic models, human rights and land violations, and structural barriers related to finance, education and health services, contribute to women and girls being 14 times more likely to die in a disaster than men. 

Powerful advocates from around the world will communicate how climate and gender justice are two sides of the same coin, and collectively call for gender-transformative and rights-based climate adaptation, finance, mitigation and disaster risk reduction
