International Women’s Day 2022: “Gender equality today for a sustainable tomorrow” | Banka Kombetare Tregtare


Banka Kombetare Tregtare as a member of the United Nations "Global Compact" and a signatory of the Women Empowerment Principles Women supports and will be part of the event for International Women’s Day, 8 March, 2022 (IWD 2022), “Gender equality today for a sustainable tomorrow”, recognizing the contribution of women and girls around the world, who are leading the charge on climate change adaptation, mitigation, and response, to build a more sustainable future for all.

Advancing gender equality in the context of the climate crisis and disaster risk reduction is one of the greatest global challenges of the 21st century. The issues of climate change and sustainability have had and will continue to have, severe and lasting impacts on our environment, economic and social development.

At the same time, women and girls are effective and powerful leaders and change-makers for climate adaptation and mitigation. They are involved in sustainability initiatives around the world, and their participation and leadership results in more effective climate action. Continuing to examine the opportunities, as well as the constraints, to empower women and girls to have a voice and be equal players in decision-making related to climate change and sustainability is essential for sustainable development and greater gender equality. Without gender equality today, a sustainable future, and an equal future, remains beyond our reach.

The United Nations Observance of International Women’s Day under the theme, “Gender equality today for a sustainable tomorrow”, will be marked by virtual (TBC) event on Tuesday, 8 March 2022, 10–11.30 a.m. EST. The senior managers of United Nations as well as gender equality and climate change activists and celebrities will participate in this event.
