Climate Change Webinar: The impact on the livelihoods of women
— , 08:00 AM - 10:00 AM | Southern Africa
Cape Agulhas Municipality in partnership with the Western Cape Department of Agriculture, Cape Nature, Overberg District Municipality, Department of Environmental Affairs and Development Planning, Institute for Poverty, Land, Agrarian Studies, and the Overberg Development Association will host a climate change webinar “Climate change and the impact on the livelihoods of women in rural areas” on Friday 13 August 2021 from 10h00 – 12h00. The webinar will be streamed via the Cape Agulhas Municipal Facebook and YouTube pages.
The objective of this webinar is to bring together voices from civic, government and academia in a discussion about the implications of climate change on the livelihoods of women. Recognising that the livelihoods of women, especially those in rural areas and fishing communities, are severely affected by climate change, the audience and speakers are invited to consider what could be done to protect and sustain the livelihoods of women working across agricultural and community food-building systems.
