The event will feature a screening a trailer of a short documentary, Weathering Change, produced by Population Action International.  The film documents how women empowerment, family planning, girls’ education, sustainable agriculture and environmental conservation are part of the solution for climate change and development.

Following the film, a featured speaker, who will be a representative from the Population and Climate Change Alliance, will frame the discussion by highlighting a rights-based approach to meeting needs for reproductive health and family planning that is centered on gender equity and women’s empowerment. An additional speaker will briefly describe successful approaches that link reproductive health with natural resource management and climate change adaptation. A moderated discussion will follow.
