Feminist Fridays #39: Climate Change and Land Degradation

In many developing countries, the burden still lies on the women to support their families and meet basic needs such as food, water and wood. However, crop failures, water scarcity and migration of traditional crops are on the raise. More than a third of land is degraded, most of it happening only in the last two decades, while current land management practices contribute to 25% of global greenhouse gas emissions, affecting the livelihood of up to 2.9 billion people worldwide. UNCCD's Executive Director Monique Barbut elaborates on the link between land, drought and migration; and the gendered drivers of land degradation in developing countries.
