Roundtable: Catalysing Climate Change Adaptation: Women, Youth, and Climate Finance in Action 

This session will explore the importance of empowering women and youth in vulnerable communities to drive climate adaptation actions, highlighting their roles in locally led climate action and how enhancing their access to resources and decision-making can promote climate-aligned development and disaster risk management. Participants will include organizations, practitioners, and decision-makers dedicated to empowering vulnerable communities, especially those near high-value forestry and conservation areas. By providing access to extension services, finance, business models, and capacity-building, these communities can become powerful advocates for climate-resilient development. Speakers from Abt Global, Save the Children, IORA, Green Climate Fund, FCDO, and others will share valuable insights.
