“Climate change is a global phenomenon, so the effects on women is not any different from how it affects everybody else, because its to do with rising temperatures, sea level rising and passive climate weather conditions.”

Adi Finau says they are so fortunate to have the support from NGOs that support these women.

Some of these support include climate change awareness, training and assistance to name a few.
