COP26: Focus on gender as the giant puppet takes center stage

Inequalities that make women and girls more vulnerable to the effects of climate change are high on the current agenda. They form a large majority of the world’s poor, and often depend on small-scale agriculture for their livelihoods. The UK government is ready to announce £ 165 million to tackle climate change while also addressing and empowering women to take climate action. And we can look forward to the appearance of Little Amal, the giant puppet of a 10-year-old Syrian refugee, who meets activists from the countries she has “walked” through during a four-month, 8,000-km (4,970-mile) journey from the Syrian border.
