Women, Dirt, and Data: Confront the Climate Crisis and Uproot Gender Inequality (Recorded)

March 17 @ 12:00 PM - 1:30 PM EDT


What will save the world? Women and dirt. A bold, transformative investment in rural and indigenous women’s rights to the soil and forests they steward ensures more sustainable life for all on this planet. Telling this story through meaningful gender-disaggregated data is key to advancing human rights and sustainable development goals alongside climate mitigation and adaptation efforts.

Landesa is proud to host a panel that explores themes related to the following questions:

  • What role do women’s land rights, dirt, and data play in combatting the climate crisis and uprooting gender inequality?
  • What story do current global datasets tell about climate causes and solutions? What are the strengths and weaknesses of this approach?
  • How can we integrate the social dimensions of climate change into existing climate change narratives and datasets? What impact could we hope to see?
  • What successful models can we learn from?


Participants: This event will feature speakers from research institutions and civil society organizations from around the world to highlight current opportunities and ongoing efforts to increase gender-equitable land rights as a strategy for climate mitigation and adaptation in forests, wetlands, and agricultural lands.

Moderator: Cedar Louis, Senior Research and Evaluation Specialist, Landesa
