The Third Global Congress of Women in Politics and Governance was a forum for decision makers to formulate gender-responsive programmes related to climate change and disaster-risk reduction. Proceedings focused on the fact that climate change magnifies existing inequalities, and in particular gender inequality. The Congress issued the Manila Declaration for Global Action on Gender, Climate Change, and Disaster Risk Reduction.
