Climate Smart Women Connect: Climate and Gender Justice for Indigenous Women in Asia

MAIN ORGANIZER(S): Stockholm Environment Institute (SEI)

Type: Meeting or Conference Date: 02 - 04 Dec 2019 Location: Bangkok

As part of Strategic Collaborative Fund programme, SEI and partners CUSO International and Asia Indigenous Peoples Pact are organizing a three day conference focused on building momentum for a more inclusive climate policy through engagement with indigenous peoples, with a focus on Indigenous Women.

Women – particularly indigenous women – are more likely than men to be affected by climate change. Vulnerabilities are rooted in gendered divisions of land, labour, decision making power and other resources. Women tend to be the primary caregivers and providers of food and fuel and therefore are more vulnerable to floods and droughts. Often times, men migrate to other communities and to cities for employment opportunities; leaving women to fend for themselves and their children. Despite some positive progress, policy development still excludes the voices of those most affected, including indigenous women. The knowledge of these women offers valuable solutions, yet the global governance architecture for climate change lacks gender balance, gender sensitivity and a meaningful recognition of indigenous knowledge.

Event Objectives

  • To build a common understanding among different actors on the impact of climate change on Indigenous Women and their livelihoods.

  • To scale up best practices and initiatives on climate change adaptation and livelihoods of Indigenous Women.

  • To identify issues that can drive transformation in the inclusion and empowerment of Indigenous Women in the climate policy agenda.
