Why do women hold the key to solving climate change? Guest Sarah Craven, chief of the United Nations Population Fund's Washington office, talks about how climate change is more than an issue of energy efficiency or industrial carbon emissions; it is also an issue of population dynamics, poverty and gender equity. 

On this show we'll look at how climate change impacts women and whether population growth is a major cause of climate change. What's the best way to protect humanity from extreme weather and rising seas? Could better access to reproductive health care and improved relations between women and men make a critical difference in addressing this long-term global problem?

Sarah Craven is the chief of the United Nations Population Fund's Washington office. Formerly with the United States Department of State and Centre for Development and Population Activities and a Staff Attorney with the National Women's Law Center, her expertise is in rights-based population policies and international women's reproductive health rights.
