Weathering Change has been translated into 7 different languages and shown to decision makers and stakeholders here in Washington, DC and around the world, including at the International Family Planning Conference in Dakar, Senegal, and COP17 in Durban, South Africa. By taking these women’s stories to policymakers, we are actively working to highlight the linkages between women’s health and climate change while also articulating the need for strengthened investment in maternal and child health, education, and women empowerment.
Furthermore, by licensing the MediaStorm Player
to present and distribute the project, Population Action International has also been able to showcase the project in a way that allows it to reach as many people as possible with as much context as possible, thanks to the multi-language subtitles, surrounding metadata, and its embedding & sharing capabilities.
Population Action International advocates for women and families to have access to contraception in order to improve their health, reduce poverty and protect their environment. Our research and advocacy strengthen U.S. and international assistance for family planning. We work with local and national leaders in developing countries to improve their reproductive health care programs and policies. PAI shows how these programs are critical to global concerns, such as preventing HIV, combating the effects of environmental degradation and climate change, and strengthening national security.
