Women's Earth Alliance recognizes that in this moment of environmental crisis, Indonesia is ground zero. As the fifth largest producer of greenhouse gases, Indonesia's emissions rose 3% last year, nearly erasing the progress that several other nations made towards limiting the average global warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius over the next 12 years.
Women in Indonesia experience the brunt of these climate disruptions and have therefore stepped forward as key leaders in designing solutions. They design from this firsthand knowledge and with future generations in mind, yet they are under-resourced and under-represented in their efforts.
That is why, in 2019, Women’s Earth Alliance is focusing our advocacy towards empowering grassroots women environmental leaders in Indonesia to drive impact towards reversing the social and environmental effects of climate change in their region
