Reversing Global Warming

Saving the planet from global warming can seem overwhelming.

Are you ready to take the next step in reversing climate change?  Here is your opportunity.

Solution # 7 - Family Planning
Honoring the dignity of women and children through family planning is not about governments forcing the birth rate down (or up, through natalist policies). Nor is it about those in rich countries, where emissions are highest, telling people elsewhere to stop having children. When family planning focuses on healthcare provision and meeting women’s expressed needs, empowerment, equality, and well-being are the result; the benefits to the planet are side effects.

Solution # 62 - Women Smallholders
Women have less access to a range of resources, from land rights and credit to
education and technology. Even though they farm as capably and efficiently as men, inequality in assets, inputs, and support means women produce less on the same amount of land. Closing this gender gap can improve the lives of women, their families and communities, while addressing global warming.
