Our changing climatic circumstances pose a huge challenge to achieving sustainable and equitable development especially for the poorest and most vulnerable sectors of society, especially women. These unprecedented climate changes are projected to make significant impacts on the lives and livelihoods of people and society as a whole which can manifest itself in a number of ways, for example, in terms of health and well being, migration, community development, gender inequality and human rights, food and nutrition security. There is now a pressing and overwhelming need to identify and develop the right policies, strategies and mechanisms to address these impacts.

This conference specifically addresses the social and gender dimensions of climate change. We are particularly interested to hear about your research, knowledge and experiences on the development of policy, strategies, approaches, tools, methodologies that can be adopted or adapted to better inform policy discussions by institutions, organisations and the international community to tackle the climate change challenge with a social and gender dimension. We are also keen to hear about grass roots research which clearly identifies needs and knowledge gaps for further research.

We hope that this conference will stimulate discussions and debates and allows for the flow and exchange of knowledge and ideas thereby creating a unique resource and point of reference in this field. This will be an interactive conference underpinned by working group sessions. The findings from this conference will enable us to set up working groups in order to take forward some of the actions and recommendations on the climate change challenge.
