Event Details

The International Day for the ending of violence against women is celebrated on November 25 each year.

Addressing the Shadow Pandemic growing amidst the COVID-19 crisis, a statement calling for the role of women and girls to be advanced in addressing climate change –that has amplified wildfires which produce increased carbon emissions and kill trees which convert CO2 to oxygen, heightening the covid pandemic’s impact on humans around the world– has been launched at COP26, jointly-sponsored by the Scottish Government and UN Women. The statement was launched following a panel discussion convened by First Minister Nicola Sturgeon, which included Prime Minister of Bangladesh Sheikh Hasina, President of Tanzania Samia Suluhu Hassan, and Prime Minister of Estonia Kaja Kallas.

The Glasgow Women’s Leadership Statement on Gender Equality and Climate Change commits to further strengthening efforts to support women and girls to lead on addressing climate change at community, national, and international level.

It recognises that women and girls are often disproportionately affected by climate change and face greater risks and burdens from its impacts, particularly in situations of poverty.
