Climate Change: Multiple Risks for Homeless Women and Girls (CSW66 Parallel Event)
Climate change may be the most important global human rights crisis of our time. People experiencing homelessness, who are already among the most vulnerable in societies, are disproportionately impacted as they have fewer resources. Climate change impacts homeless women and girls even more profoundly as entrenched gender inequalities increase their risk for poor health, domestic violence, trafficking and child marriage. Our panel will propose policies and programs to strengthen the resilience and support women and girls experiencing homelessness during climate crises.

Presented by the NGO Working Group to End Homelessness and moderated by Jean Quinn, Executive Director of UNANIMA International, panelists include:
- Balakrishnan Rajogopal, UN Special Rapporteur on the Right to Adequate Housing
- Leilani Farha, Global Director, The Shift
- Dr. Mininim Oseji, Immediate Past National President of the Medical Women's Association of Nigeria
- Sr. Aisha Kavalakattu, SCN, Nepal
- Dana Marlowe, Founder & Executive Director, I Support the Girls
- Diamond Cotton, I Support the Girls
- Dr. Jennifer Bhuiyan, Assistant Professor of Pharmacy Practice, St. John's University
