The side event "climate change and the impact on violence against women” will highlight the linkages between the impacts of climate change on gender-based violence (GBV) against women and girls and identify possibilities and strategies for preventing and responding to GBV in the context of climate change. It will explore how environmental and sustainable development initiatives can better mitigate against GBV related risks and the integration of GBV prevention and response into climate change related policies and programmes, including those which focus on the role of women’s rights organizations and women human rights defenders in addressing the impacts of climate change.
