Areas of Environmental Action:

Climate Change, Energy 

Summary of Achievements:

Climate change is one of the biggest challenge we are facing. I believe that climate policy should not only concentrate on the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions, but should rather follow a broader approach towards sustainable development.

I am certain that, for all policies and mechanisms aiming at climate change mitigation, addressing equity is a precondition for their successful implementation. Taking into account justice and especially gender justice in climate change debates and policies will lead to a shift from mere technical and economic solutions to integrated approaches, which put livelihood and people in the center.

To cope with the challenge, we need the experience and competence of women. With all my energy I work towards integrating gender perspectives into mitigation of and adaptation to climate change.
