Join us for the launch of Georgetown Institute for Women, Peace and Security’s (GIWPS) latest climate report, “Inclusive Adaptation: A Benefit Multiplier for Climate Action and Women, Peace and Security,” in collaboration with the Better Way Foundation.

GIWPS experts will highlight key findings from the report and demonstrate how meaningful inclusion of women in local-level climate adaptation efforts can strengthen climate responses, gender equality, and security. Panelists will include grassroots women climate leaders to discuss how inclusive approaches to local-level climate adaptation in the energy and agricultural sectors can drive progress for all.
