COP27: Lack of women at negotiations raises concern

Activists and politicians have warned that too few women are participating in COP27 climate negotiations, charities. 

Women make up less than 34% of country negotiating teams at the UN summit in Egypt. This is despite evidence that females bear a disproportionate burden from climate change.

Government officials and campaigners say that without greater representation climate change can't be tackled and women's lives will worsen as a result.
