Women Leading on Equitable and Inclusive Solutions to address the Climate Emergency
14th March 2022 6pm UTC, Online
Sustainable Cities Co-lead Professor Georgia Kremmyda will be charing a panel session at CSW66
The International Network for Women Engineers and Scientists (INWES), the World Federation of Engineering Organizations (WFEO), the International Science Council (ISC) and the United Nations University Institute on Comparative Regional Integration Studies (UNU CRS) together represent women in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) across 100 nations.
Join us to share insights into the current status of the contribution of women scientists and engineers to the global debate of Climate Emergency and present strategies for increasing the contribution of women in this domain, especially as leaders. Gender equality is essential for business growth, for innovation, for the knowledge economy, for achieving the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
The presentations in this CSW66 Parallel Event will cover the diversity imperative, the need for equitable and inclusive solutions to address the Climate Emergency. These will be followed by a moderated discussion session. You are encouraged to bring your questions, your experiences, your ideas to share.

Join us for a fascinating talk by Dr Priti Parikh, Associate Professor at UCL's Bartlett School of Sustainable Construction. During the talk, Dr Parikh will present her research.
Dr. Parikh has been awarded a prestigious five year Senior Research fellowship co-funded by industry (BBOXX) and Royal Academy of Engineering. The fellowship titled Smart Solar Solutions for all (S34ALL) focuses on smart solar solutions for resource challenged communities combining machine learning based models with consumer surveys.
Dr. Parikh has expertise in infrastructure (water, sanitation and energy) for resource constrained settings such as slums and rural communities in Africa and Asia. She is also leading research on developing evidence base to link SDG's and infrastructure.
She was Co-Investigator on the PANChSHEEEL project funded by MRC/GCRF which is looking at integrated health, education, engineering and environmental interventions to improve feeding practices for infants in India. She is Co-Investigator on the IsuLabantu project funded by ESRC/NRF which looks at self upgrading participatory processes for informal settlements in South Africa. She is also Co-Investigator on the Resilient Schools project in Indonesia where she is exploring WASH solutions for building resilient schools post disaster.
The seminar is being jointly organised by the Early Career Researcher Network on Environment Related SDGs and the Institute for Global Sustainable Development.
