Women are more affected by climate change

Women are more affected by climate change

Women are the most affected by climate change. However, we never discussed their issues. But tackling climate change will not be successful without addressing the issue of more than half of the country’s women.

Women’s issues should be important in the climate adaptation sector and should keep a separate allocation in the National budget.



Speakers spoke at a workshop held in Dhaka recently on the impact of climate change on women. The workshop was organized to strategize advocacy work to address the impact of climate change on women in collaboration with the Association for Land Reform and Development (ALRD), International Land Coalition (ILC), and Landesa, USA.

Member of Parliament (Bangladesh)t Shireen Akhter, Environment, Science, Technology and Health Officer of US Embassy in Bangladesh Sivani Rasanayakam, Pallab Chakma on behalf of ILC (Asia), Corey Creedon, Sustainable Livelihood Specialist of Landesa, USA, Pinaki Halder, National Director of Landesa, India were present at the opening ceremony of the workshop.



In her special guest speech, Shirin Akhter, Member of Parliament (Bangladesh), said, “Govt. should allocate for women separately regarding climate change adaptation with more importance.”

In the welcome speech of the opening ceremony, ALRD Executive Director Shamsul Huda said that although women are the most affected by climate change, their issue is never discussed. But tackling climate change will not be successful without addressing the issue of more than half of the country’s women.

 Roshan Jahan Moni, deputy director of ALRD and coordinator of Stand for Her Land Campaign Bangladesh, said that tackling climate change can be a positive aspect by empowering women.



In the President’s speech, Khushi Kabir said, “When taking up development projects, it should ensure that women are at the center of development project activities.”

The workshop included workers of various national and local private organizations, media workers, and researchers.
