Advancing Climate Justice and Humanitarian Action: Celebrating African Women’s Leadership

March 18, 2022 @ 9:00 am - 11:30 am


For our third instalment in the series, we are celebrating African women leading on climate justice. As the latest Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change report recently published in February 2022 shows, women are disproportionately impacted by climate change particularly in Africa, but our guests are climate champions that have overcome the barriers. They are Prof. Okorodudu-Fubara, one of the founding mothers of environmental justice research and education who laid the foundation for climate justice work in Africa, and Ms. Joyce Msuya, a United Nations leader who has worked hard to advance climate justice in global policy and Africa. Our honorees will share their journeys, challenges, and advice to emerging young female climate leaders. There will also be an opportunity to ask them questions.
