National Women's Day

Women bear disproportionate impacts from climate change such as food insecurity, displacement, and loss of livelihoods due to factors like gender and ethnicity. Despite this, however, they remain left out of climate discussions, with only 55 national climate action plans across the globe addressing gender equality and only 23 of them recognizing women as key agents for advancing climate commitments.

Today, as we celebrate the International Women’s Day with the theme, "Invest in women: Accelerate progress" and national theme, “LIPUNANG PATAS SA BAGONG PILIPINAS: Kakayahan ng Kababaihan, Patunayan!” let us highlight the importance of women's inclusion in climate dialogue and action. Their perspectives, experiences, and leadership are essential in crafting effective and equitable solutions to address the challenges posed by climate change.

Happy National Women’s Day from the Climate Change Commission!
March 8 is observed as National Women’s Day to celebrate women’s achievements and reaffirm society’s commitment to gender equality and women's empowerment as per Republic Act 6949.
