The impacts of climate change are as diverse as the people affected by it. Communities everywhere are looking for solutions to adapt to and combat the crisis. But how are the needs of these local leaders reflected in the global conversation about climate change? What voices aren’t being heard as decisions are made about energy, food, and health?
As we near the start of COP28, and eyes turn to Dubai as presidents and prime ministers discuss our climate future, this episode of #RFBreakthrough looks to local leaders for insight. This panel of Vital Voices women leaders on climate have championed solutions at the community level, and found ways for towns and villages to thrive in the face of climate catastrophe. We’ll hear about their expectations for COP28 and what needs to be done as we continue to respond to the evolving environment.
