“It is our hope that this community led engagement will enhance capacity building and promote community policy advocacy and feed into our medium term goal of having grassroots climate change monitors and action committees to ensure grassroots ownership of the climate change campaign.”

The Women’s Hearing will be organized in Accra, Ghana on 17 October, coinciding with the International Day for the Eradication of Poverty. It seeks to provide a forum to bring all key stakeholders together to assess country’s situations and performance on climate change and give a verdict on it.

A photo exhibition and footages will showcase the images and voices captured from the field will be showcased as part of this effort. A delegation comprising mostly of women will officially present copies of the report to the Ministers of the Ministry of Women and Children, and Ministry of Environment, Science and Technology respectively at a round table media event, to influence negotiations and plans of action on climate change at the national as well as the international level especially during COP17 and Rio+ 20.
