Poorly managed waste is threatening human and planet’s health. Around 2.8 per cent of global greenhouse gas emissions originate from the waste and wastewater sector. In many societies, women are traditionally responsible for managing household waste as part of their daily chores, meaning they have greater engagement with domestic waste management.

In this episode of For Her Future, we have Divya Hegde, a climate action entrepreneur from Udupi, Karnataka. She has several accolades to her name including the UN Women’s Award for Leadership Commitment at the 2021 Regional Asia-Pacific Women’s Empowerment Principles Awards. She has been widely recognised for her work in advancing gender equality through climate action efforts.
