Women need more adaptation funding, activists charge - AlertNet

Women need more adaptation funding, activists charge - AlertNet: "DHAKA, Bangladesh (AlertNet) - Despite being disproportionately affected by climate change, women and girls are getting relatively little attention and money in Bangladesh’s climate adaptation initiatives, activists and negotiators say.

The Bangladesh Climate Change Trust Fund, financed with Tk 25 billion ($305 million) from the national budget, has financed only one project focused on women out of 109 climate adaptation and mitigation projects, they say."
