Because #ruralwomen sustain:
👩‍🌾 agriculture,
🥕 food security & nutrition,
💧 land & resource management,
🤱 unpaid & domestic care work,
they bear the brunt of climate change. They need to be at the heart of #ClimateAction.

#CleanHandsforAll means that everyone, everywhere has access to soap and water to wash their hands.

Yet, only 1 out of 3 have basic handwashing facilities with soap and water at home. This #GlobalHandwashingDay, we must leave no one behind. https://buff.ly/2Vmtj2d

#Syria: Civilian casualties are occurring each day, on both sides of the Turkey-Syria border. We are appalled by attacks affecting medical facilities, and by summary executions apparently committed by an armed group affiliated with #Turkey.
