Abstract:

The impacts of climate change are challenging the world and in particular are affecting the poorest countries, the most vulnerable ones, especially poor women. In 2015, the international community adopted two major agendas to fight climate change, the 2030 agenda for sustainable development adopted at the United Nations Sustainable Development Summit on 25 September 2015 and the Paris agreement, endorsed in December of the same year. Gender equality and women’s concerns are embedded in both agreements. Because of the new 2030 roadmap, gender equality is reaffirmed as a priority of human rights and dignity, through sustainable development Goal number 5. Women still have less economic, political and legal power. Women are powerful agents of change.
