Our Focus Areas
Our thematic focus areas have changed over the years in response to emerging global issues and we are constantly working to stay on top of the world’s most pressing issues facing women. WEDO is currently working on the broad themes of:
- Climate Change

From on the ground mobilization of women activists to building women’s leadership to ensuring safe space and participation opportunities for women’s civil society to advocacy on international legal agreements, WEDO programs work to support and build a movement at all levels that can shift behavior, change global and local systems and promote justice for all. We do this through training advocates and activists, building capacity via knowledge products, raising awareness through communications and outreach, directly influencing climate policy, supporting decentralized mobilization and more.
