CANCELED: Living Proof: Documenting the Human Toll of Climate Change

The impacts of climate change—disasters, water scarcity, food insecurity—threaten lives and livelihoods, and can exacerbate the risk of conflict in already fragile countries. At the same time, women and girls are disproportionately affected by these challenges, but investing in their education could not only help them adapt, but also make their communities more resilience.

CANCELED: Living Proof: Documenting the Human Toll of Climate Change

Due to inclement weather in the Washington, DC area, this event has been canceled. We apologize for any inconvenience.

The impacts of climate change—disasters, water scarcity, food insecurity—threaten lives and livelihoods, and can exacerbate the risk of conflict in already fragile countries. At the same time, women and girls are disproportionately affected by these challenges, but investing in their education could not only help them adapt, but also make their communities more resilience.

On March 21st, join us for a screening and discussion of two short films from the GroundTruth Project’s Living Proof series—“A Climate for Conflict” and “Breadwinner”— that grapple with the social instability associated with environmental change and the far-reaching impact of women’s empowerment. The filmmaker, Beth Murphy, will discuss the links between climate, conflict, and gender with Marcus King, an academic expert on environmental conflict, and a leading advocate, A. Tianna Scozzaro from the Sierra Club.

Media guests, including TV crews, are welcome and should RSVP directly to Benjamin.Dills@wilsoncenter.org. Media bringing heavy electronics MUST indicate this in their response so they may be cleared through our building security and allowed entrance. Please err toward responding if you would like to attend.

Join the conversation on Twitter by following @NewSecurityBeat and find related coverage on our blog at NewSecurityBeat.org.

Global Risk and Resilience Program

The Global Risk and Resilience Program (GRRP) seeks to support the development of inclusive, resilient networks in local communities facing global change. By providing a platform for sharing lessons, mapping knowledge, and linking people and ideas, GRRP and its affiliated programs empower policymakers, practitioners, and community members to participate in the global dialogue on sustainability and resilience. Empowered communities are better able to develop flexible, diverse, and equitable networks of resilience that can improve their health, preserve their natural resources, and build peace between people in a changing world.  Read more
