On this World Earth Day, the #LAB4GE Partners take the opportunity to highlight the role of women in fostering a healthy environment on Mother Earth.
The link between Gender Equality and the environment is oftentimes overlooked, but it is important to acknowledge the interconnectedness of the two;“
Achieving gender equality represents the best opportunity we have today to address many of the most pressing challenges of our time, including climate change. Strengthening the resilience of communities and societies requires the full and effective participation of women in all their diversity.” – María Noel Vaeza, UN Women’s Regional Director for the Americas and the Caribbean.
