On October 2011 we are expected to reach a population of 7 billion. In an effort to create dialogue and action surrounding this issue UNFPA has launched the 7 Billion Actions campaign. “The 7 Billion Actions campaign will promote dialogue on what it means to live in a world with so many people and encourage action on issues that affect us all.”

As you think about what it will be like to live in a planet with 7 billion people, WEDO joins UNFPA in their effort to create dialogue by inviting you to read and discuss our Climate Change Connections publication which highlights the links between gender, population and climate change. In it you will learn about:

  • Women as agents of change
  • National Adaptation Programs of Action
  • International Government Commitments
  • Effects of climate change on women in five different countries
    And much more!
