Burundi celebrated International Women’s Day focusing on the issue of environmental protection for food security and women’s empowerment. The country is experiencing severe impact of climate change, and women, a large proportion of whom rely on farming and are responsible for gathering fuel and water, and supplying food, are particularly impacted. The event advocated for the rights of women to education, access to land and resources and called for a constitutional amendment to ensure 50 per cent quota for women’s representation.
