Minister for Women, Children, and Senior Citizens Uma Regmi has said climate change and gender equality are big challenges of the 21st century. For this to address globally, solidarity is imperative, she underscored.

Addressing the 66th session of the UN on the status of women in New York, the US, Minister Regmi informed that Nepal had created a robust foundation for women's empowerment along with legal and constitutional setups.

Even the rights of safe maternity, right to property, reproductive health, education, equal wage, and social security are key achievements for the empowerment of women in Nepal," he shared before the world leaders.

She also reminded me that women are forced to shoulder the brunt of climate change in recent times. So, women should be ensured their representation in policy and decision making and implementation level to reduce the cost of climate change to women and girls, according to Minister Regmi.
