Grantee News from Population Action International
Population Action International announces the release of its newest documentary that shows how women are coping with the effects of climate change in developing countries. Weathering Change follows women in Ethiopia, Nepal and Peru as they struggle to care for their families while enduring crop failures and water scarcity.
The film documents how family planning, girls’ education, sustainable agriculture and environmental conservation are part of the solution. As the world’s population hits 7 billion in 2011, PAI calls for expanding access to contraception and empowering women to help families and communities adapt to the effects of climate change.
PAI is also releasing an updated mapping website that contains interactive maps, graphs, and videos offering a closer look at population, gender, and climate change.
