For International Women’s Day on March 8, the U.S. Agency for International Development Lowering Emissions in Asia’s Forests (USAID LEAF) program released a short film on its Asia-Pacific Leadership Initiative on Gender and Climate Change.

The initiative presents how men and women can make significant contributions to gender integration into climate change issues. Twenty-four gender champions from 21 institutions and six countries from government agencies, non-governmental organizations and other institutions are participating in the initiative.
