Women’s empowerment is key to reducing climate change

Dakar, 22 September – How does gender equality reduce emissions?
With access to education, family planning and birth control, women have the ability to choose how many children to have and when they have them. The NourDign project shows that with this access, women have less children and have them later in life. In both rural and urban areas, slower population growth relieves stress on ecosystems, allowing resources to recover from overuse without compromising local food access. The use of the new “Green” technologies to process the food and power the machineries is a key of the NourDign project.
With these additional resources, women also earn more money, achieve career goals and face fewer health issues. Rural women see higher crop yields, providing better nutrition and financial stability for their families.
