Cambodian Climate Hero Profile: Ms. Pak Pov
Ms. Pov is a recipient of gender champion training provided by ActionAid Cambodia, who have now partnered with the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) to extend the training to more provinces in Cambodia. As part of the training Ms. Pov learned about gender equality and disaster risk reduction – something she now passes onto others. “Only women can understand women’s issues. When emergencies happen or anything is wrong, women will report this to other women – not to their husbands or other men. It is important to have women in the leadership in the community”.
