As the first victims of global warming, women are at the origin of many innovative solutions that could benefit everyone... provided they have the space to develop them! To save the world, let's save women?
The figures speak for themselves: women accounted for two-thirds of the victims of the 2004 tsunami and 90% of the victims of the cyclone that hit Bangladesh in 1991. And according to a UN report, women are 14 times less likely than men to cope in the event of a natural disaster.
In emerging countries, the role of women is crucial in the ecological transition. So much so that the IPCC, which met this summer in Geneva, advocates giving more power to women in agriculture. According to the United Nations, when women have equal access to resources, they can increase their agricultural yields by 20 to 30 per cent, which not only increases total agricultural production in these countries by 2.5 to 4 per cent, but also contributes to reducing hunger in the world by 12 or 17 per cent!

As shown by the following evidence Isabelle Masholawhich created the responsible platform Isahit to teach new digital skills to women in Africa, or the founders of Barefoot College, who teach Indian women to assemble and repair solar solutions and are part of "The Good Galaxy", the actors of change gathered by Engie last June. On the condition that the glass ceiling of technology, which keeps women in a secondary role when it comes to digital and new business, is broken. "We have to show them that it is possible and, as much as possible, necessary," insists Isabelle Kocher, CEO of Engie, who is often cited as a role model for her commitment to women and her professional career. I'm trying to do it and I'm not the only one. I see many young women doing very well in the technology sector. The eye has to get used to it, too! »
Because women's role is crucial to accelerate the energy transition, their place in society is everyone's business.
