As we pursue a more sustainable economy, progress on gender diversity must be at the forefront of our goals. Women are often disproportionately affected by the impacts of climate change, and there can be tremendous synergies between efforts to achieve gender equality and address climate change.  Gender responsive climate investments can strengthen climate and environmental outcomes, open up business opportunities and be financially more effective.

I support the IGC Panel Parity Pledge.
