Why climate change is sexist and what to do about it
Climate change is not gender neutral; it is sexist. This was the message when SIWI’s focal point for gender, Sarah Breslin, spoke in a session during the climate meeting COP26 in Glasgow. She also outlined what more equal policies could look like.

SIWI at COP26
To address the climate crisis effectively, the world needs to focus on water solutions. SIWI is bringing this message to the climate meeting COP26 where we are hosting the first-ever Water Pavilion with partners – and you are invited to join us.Join us at COP26
At SIWI, we are experts in water policy and processes. For three decades, we have offered advice on water governance, water diplomacy, and cooperation over shared waters. As the world’s freshwater comes under growing pressure, this expertise is more needed than ever.
Raising the voice of water
How we manage water will determine if we achieve the Sustainable Development Goals and the climate targets. SIWI participates in different international processes to raise awareness of the role of water.
Supporting better water management
All sectors of society need to change how they use and manage water. SIWI offers advice on policies, regulations, and methods to make this possible.
Capacity-building for water stewards
In an era of global warming and increasing uncertainties, capacity-building is becoming more and more important. SIWI offers tailor-made training on a broad range of topics.
Facilitating important dialogues
With the right support, different stakeholders can start a dialogue that helps them understand each other’s viewpoints and develop mutually beneficial solutions.
Bridging science and policy
SIWI generates new knowledge and bridges the gap between science and policy. We also award the world’s most prestigious water award, the Stockholm Water Prize.
Bringing stakeholders together
We need many different meeting-places to discuss water-related risks and opportunities. One of SIWI’s most important roles is to provide platforms for discussions, knowledge exchange and the co-creation of solutions.
