UN Commission on the Status of Women Addresses Climate Change

The United Nations Commission on the Status of Women will meet March 1 through 12 in New York City. There are a number of side events open to the public that coincide with the event, many of which address the role of women within the dialogue of climate change and social justice.

Events include the NAACP-sponsored “Overcoming Copenhagen: Black Women Organizing Climate Justice” (March1); “Climate change and gender responsiveness in Asia-Pacific,” sponsored by the Korean Institute for Women Politics (March 2); and “Gender and Climate Change–the Untold Story of Copenhagen,” sponsored by the International Alliance of Women (March 4).
