UN Secretary-General Appoints All-Male Climate Change Panel
U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon's decision to appoint a 19-member, all-male high-level advisory group on Climate Change Financing (CCF) has triggered strong protests from women's groups and non-governmental organisations (NGOs) outraged by the composition of the panel.
The new panel was announced on Mar. 12 when the United Nations, ironically, concluded a two-week meeting on gender empowerment.
