I support the IGC gender-based violence pledge.

Personal Commitments

Young people are the hope and the promise for shaping a better future. I am committed to empowering youth by creating opportunities to develop their leadership skills and make their voices heard. Furthermore, I will promote efforts to increase access to technology for young people, particularly girls in developing countries and Small Islands Developing States.
Women and girls are disproportionately impacted by the catastrophic effects of climate change. Greater access to climate-related education, training, and other opportunities for women and girls in the multilateral arena is crucial for more inclusive climate change adaptation, decision-making, and risk reduction strategies to overcome the adverse impacts of climate change on women and girls.
