Climate change impacts us all – with the immediate effects most often felt through water insecurity. So why, we ask, is only 3% of climate finance dedicated to water-related adaptation? As 2030 fast approaches, the Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) targets on water and sanitation are still distant hopes, and water insecurity is growing as the climate crisis becomes a reality for billions of people. As stewards of water, women and girls confront the impacts of climate change every day yet lack decision making power to influence climate finance commitments to water security. These impacts are deepening the devastating impact of widespread gender inequality in our changing climate. We ask our policy makers and leaders to prioritise investment in gender transformative water security at COP27 and to commit to the clear actions defined in this webinar.
The webinar will include statements and presentations to demonstrate water security evidence, WASH as a pathway for gender equality, and the essential element of gender responsive climate finance that includes investment in water, sanitation, and hygiene. Breakout groups will discuss 5 calls to action as we finalize a Joint Statement for endorsement in lead up to COP27. Please join the dialogue! Note the plenary session will have interpretation in French and English.
