COP27 Fails Women & Girls – High Time to Redefine Multilateralism (Part 1 of 3)

Nowhere is this more obvious or dangerous than in the functioning of the interstate system that the world community expects to address threats to global survival, the most comprehensive and imminent of which is the impending climate catastrophe.

He has done a great service to our understanding of the significance of gender equality to the survival of the planet.
