“Participation in climate and environmental decision-making is a human right, and equal participation of people of all genders generates outcomes that are more effective and sustainable.” Tara Daniel

Climate & Gender Fellowship 2024
Why Mexico and Central America?
Read this page in Spanish

Central America and Mexico, experience significant gender disparities, particularly in terms of the impacts of climate change. Women often bear a disproportionate burden due to their roles in caregiving, reliance on natural resources, and limited access to decision-making processes.

The region is highly vulnerable to the adverse effects of climate change, including extreme weather events, rising temperatures, and natural disasters. These environmental challenges exacerbate existing gender inequalities, placing women at higher risk.

Women are underrepresented in climate activism and decision-making related to climate policies. Empowering women through a fellowship can contribute to a more inclusive and effective response to climate change by bringing diverse perspectives and experiences to the forefront.

The fellowship provides an opportunity to empower local communities, particularly women, to actively participate in climate action. By supporting and funding projects led by women, the initiative aims to create positive impacts at a community level.

The fellowship focuses on building the knowledge and capacity of young women activists. This is essential for fostering a new generation of leaders equipped with the skills and expertise needed to address climate challenges effectively.

Climate change is a justice issue

Those who have the least political and economic power, and the least responsibility for the changing climate, are affected the most.


We partner with CEPAD in Nicaragua to empower seven communities in Teustepe with the skills, knowledge and community resilience required to address their own problems.

Once In A Lifetime

A short social-friendly snippet from Amos Trust’s Once In A Lifetime climate justice summit in Cambridge in September 2019 when we were joined by climate activists, thinkers and doers.


We support rural communities in Nicaragua through our partner CEPAD but we can’t do it without your help. Every penny goes to supporting those most affected by climate change.
