You’re Invited to the Premiere of Weathering Change

Please join Population Action International and the
Woodrow Wilson Center’s Environmental Change and Security Program
for a screening and discussion of PAI’s new short documentary
Weathering Change: Stories about climate and family from women around the world

Weathering Change takes us to Ethiopia, Nepal and Peru to hear the stories of women as they struggle to care for their families, while enduring crop failures and water scarcity. The film shows how women and families are already adapting to the climate change challenges that threaten their health and their livelihoods.

Weathering Change documents how family planning, girls’ education, sustainable agriculture and environmental conservation are part of the solution. As the world’s population hits 7 billion in 2011, the film calls for expanding access to contraception and empowering women to help families and
communities adapt to the effects of climate change.
