Global climate change has had noticeable negative effects on the environment and people’s lives all over the globe, hitting the most vulnerable groups, such as women and girls, the hardest. Women’s frontline organisations from different parts of the world see more and more how the devastating consequences of the ongoing climate crisis make it easier to lure women and girls and exploit them in the sex industry. Nevertheless, the connection between the issue of climate change and sexualised exploitation is rarely discussed.

During this parallel event we will talk about addressing prostitution, pornography and other forms of commercial sexualised exploitation in the situation of climate crisis.

Together with women’s NGOs from Kenya, Mexico, Mongolia, Russiaand the USA we will explore the links between resource extraction, climate displacement and other consequences of climate change, on the one hand, and growing vulnerability and exploitation of women and girls, on the other hand. The focus will be put on the practical mea- sures for prevention of and response to sexualised exploitation of women and girls in general, and particularly, in the areas largely affected by environmental disasters.
