Persons Contemplating the Andes in Perú.

Women in the Global South are disproportionately negatively impacted by environmental threats and climate change; women who are already in marginalised positions are particularly vulnerable, especially those who are impoverished, indigenous or who live in rural areas. For many women in these contexts environmental adversity is an embodied experience. This website is dedicated to research exploring environmental effects on maternal, reproductive and mental health and potential community-based solutions.
