Women and climate change in Bageshwori

In 2008, women experiencing the impact of climate change in poor areas in Nepal came together to tell the story about how climate change is affecting their lives.

Through making participatory videos, the women explored how they and their families are being affected, what they are doing to cope, and what they would need to protect their livelihoods.

The participatory videos will be used to bring womens voices to the climate change debate at local, national and international levels, and conveys powerful messages to policy makers shaping the global response to climate change.

The project was supported by ActionAid Nepal (www.actionaid.org) and the Institute of Development Studies (www.ids.ac.uk). This film represents a clip from the longer participatory video made by women from Bageshwori, Nepal.
