“Women and Climate” projects, 1 year on
In 2018, Fondation CHANEL began a multi-year strategic partnership with UN Women to support various innovative projects on the theme “Women and Climate” in Asia. A major investment in terms of resources and support which, one and a half year on, is already achieving excellent results.
Although not widely recognised today, the role of women in addressing climate challenges is key due to their in-depth knowledge of work in rural areas and their expertise in the sustainable management of resources. By working together, the Fondation and UN Women have sought to emphasise the important link between fighting gender inequality and combatting climate change.
In the framework of this partnership, three different countries and contexts have been selected for program implementation.
