Ms Cecilia Kibe Muthoni Cecilia is the coordinator for the Kenya Climate Justice Women Champions (KCJWC). See: KCJWC is a network for advocacy on gender and climate justice in Kenya. The driving force of the network is the realisation that women are faced by a situation where their ability to adapt is low due to a number of pre‐existing factors, while the share of the adaptation burden falls disproportionately on them. The KCJWC works with civil society and the government to develop strategies to enhance women's capacities and resilience to climate change, including advocacy for greater participation of women and gender mainstreaming in climate change processes and action. Cecilia is also the Convenor of the Conflicts over Natural Resources and Gender Group in the Kenya Climate Change Working Group.
