The Huairou Commission is an international network that builds the capacity of grassroots women’s organizations to wield collective influence for sustainable, gender equitable and pro-poor development, including at international levels. The Huairou Commission supported the grassroots leader Winrose Nyaguthi Mwangi, of GROOTS Kenya, to speak at the COP in Durban for a high-level event on gender-sensitive climate finance.
