Call For Abstracts: Gender and Climate Change – Prato, Tuscany September
Gender and Climate Change is an international conference that will seek to
bring together the latest research in key areas of gender and climate
change, to highlight impacts of climate change on women, and to draw
together a body of knowledge for input into the 2011 United Nations
Framework Convention (COP 17) and the Earth Summit 2012.
The Conference Organisers – Gender Leadership and Social Sustainability
(GLASS) Research Unit at Monash University, Australia, in collaboration with
Worldwide Universities Network, Gender Justice and Global Climate Change
(G2C2) – aim to bring together researchers, advocates, and policy makers, to
form a coherent picture of the differential impacts of climate change and to
convey that knowledge in formats that assist in policy development. The 2011

and change. More details here.
