Abstract
Women and men will feel the impacts of climate change differently and can also make different contributions to mitigation and adaptation. The seminar will review some of the mitigation and adaptation strategies currently being employed and argue that with the right approach, they can empower women, and thereby improve the outcomes and impacts.
