Climate change and Tunisia's Tozeur oases: an opportunity to boost women's leadership and economic activity

28.10.2019 / Created by (EMWF)

Despite the disproportionate impact of climate change on women and scientists alarm bells, these risks must be faced with hope and seen as an opportunity to empower women and increase their contributions to finding sustainable alternatives and solutions to environmental problems and their socio-economic consequences. This article attempts to explore the specific relationship between climate change and women in the oases of Tozeur (Tunisia), whose ecosystem has been disrupted and some of its climate change-resistant  crops have disappeared due to some unfortunate agricultural policies.

The article is based on a field diagnosis conducted by The association La Ruche de la citoyenneté active de Tozeur (The Hive of Active Citizenship of Tozeur), with the support of the Euro-Mediterranean Women’s Foundation (FFEM) and the European Institute of the Mediterranean (IEMed).
