The Hidden Opportunity for Climate Compatible Development

April 20, 2015

By December 2015, world leaders will finalize a new global agreement to address climate change. Ensuring that gender issues and population dynamics are adequately considered in the agreement is critical to its success and sustainability.

Far too often, climate policy does not sufficiently address sexual and reproductive health and rights and the role of women in building resilient communities. Please join this interactive dialogue with thought leaders and policymakers as we explore the hidden opportunity for climate compatible development.

An interactive dialogue featuring:

The Right Honorable Helen Clark, administrator, United Nations Development Programme
The Honorable Julia Duncan-Cassell, minister of Gender and Development, Liberia
Dr. Jennifer Adams, deputy assistant administrator, Bureau of Global Health, US Agency for International Development

Moderated by:

Tony Dokoupil, Host of MSNBC Shift’s “Greenhouse,” NBC senior writer
