Echoes for Eco
Photobook on women’s contribution from the Rohingya and host communities in Cox’s Bazar to climate change adaptation
The GiHA WG Climate Action Photobook titled “Echoes for Eco” highlights the contributions of women and girls from the Rohingya and the host community in Cox’s Bazar to climate change adaptation initiatives.
The images and stories echo the need for ecologically responsible approaches — through the experiences of aware, active, and resilient women coping with disaster losses and enhancing community resilience and recovery.
Contrary to the stereotype that has led to women being underrepresented in climate action, these protagonists showed how they promote, produce, and use sustainable practices and technologies.
This publication is intended to reiterate the critical role that women can and do play in addressing climate action through their local knowledge and leadership at the household and community levels.
