GenderCC is hosting the Grassroots Women’s Conference on Climate Change

GenderCC – Women for Climate Justice will host an international conference of grassroots women prior to the UNFCCC COP17 on 24th /25th of November 2011 at the Saints Hospitality Centre, 92 Rippon Road,Sydenham, Durban for exchange and expression of grassroots women’s climate change issues and demands for COP17. The conference will bring together grassroots women from various world regions and representatives of development organisations, NGOs, donors and others working on the issues of gender and climate change.

As countries prepare for the UNFCCC COP 17 and working on their negotiation positions which in most cases do not consider gendered impacts of climate change and strategies for mitigation at all, it is time for grassroots women from all over the world to come together and strengthen their voice. In a concerted action, pressure should be build up on the negotiating parties to support the claims for a climate change agreement that takes women’s critical climate change issues wholeheartedly into account.
