Cofe tables talk

Feminist leaders from climate affected countries and displacement settings provide critical information to COP28

Feminist Leadership for Climate Justice

The Cofe Tables Talk is a project led by New Women Connectors that aims to gather feminist leaders from climate-affected countries and from displacement settings to provide critical information for COP. It promotes rethinking traditional climate change responses and provides a safe space - especially for women - to share ideas and incubate projects.

Though New Women Connectors is honored to have been invited to COP, we are disappointed by the lack of representation of women, and especially women from displacement settings, from climate affected countries and/or from grassroots organizations. We therefore take it as our mission to collect their perspectives - the challenges they face and the solutions they find to cope with it - and bring their voices to the high-level international decision making summit that is COP.


Meaningful participation and inclusive planning, informed by cultural values, Indigenous Knowledge, local knowledge, and scientific knowledge can help address adaptation gaps and avoid maladaptation. Such actions with flexible pathways may encourage low-regret and timely actions. Integrating climate adaptation into social protection programmes, including cash transfers and public works programmes, would increase resilience to climate change, especially when supported by basic services and infrastructure.

Where COPs have been the platform for Governments, International Organisations, International Financial Institutions, Intergovernmental Organisations, and the like, the Feminist CoFe Tables Talk provide spaces for the missing stakeholders on the climate change tables and high-level dialogs - women and grassroots organizations that are amongst the first affectees and first responders to effects of climate change.
