Description

Women and girls are more vulnerable to the impacts of climate change than men. But with the right resources, could women and girls actually be a solution to climate change?

On this week's episode of Sky News ClimateCast, hosts Anna Jones and Katerina Vittozzi explore the role education and family planning play in the fight against climate change.

They meet Harriet Cheelo from Zambia, who has applied her charity-funded education to a career in sustainable farming.

Plus they hear from Olasimbo Sojinrin from Solar Sister, a business that champions women across Africa and ensures off-grid communities have access to renewable energy.

But with the cuts in foreign aid, could women's opportunities to play a role in the fight against climate change be at risk? UNFPA share how their programmes will be hit by the UK government's decision to reduce funding for developing countries.
