Ms. Fernandez on the International Women's Earth and Climate Summit:
“Although climate change is a global problem, not everybody is equally affected by its effects. Girls and women are, and will continue to be, the most affected. Developing a Women's Climate Action Agenda is key to ensure affordable solutions to climate change threats. There is no point in making decisions about us, without us.”
