Young Women Group Of Climate Change Negotiators Mentorship Program
The Young Women Group of Climate Change Negotiators Mentorship Program is a program in Malawi that was initiated by Green Girls Platform. This development was initiated after seeing that young women and girls in this country have tremendous potential towards contributing to socioeconomic development and coming up with climate change adaptation strategies that will suit their needs. The aim is to engage young women and girls in building communities that are resilient to environmental and climate change impacts through capacity development on local and international climate change and environmental related policies.
This program is carried out through frameworks, leadership skills development and enhancement of their confidence to actively participate and demand gender responsive policies and representation at all levels of decision-making.
The main objective is to create a women led but expert guided engagement model for transformative climate change education that will help young women and girls develop interest, deepen their understanding and amplify collective voices on various sectoral issues that affect them
