"The 1st International Summit of Indigenous Women of Abya Yala is taking place in #Cochabamba, with the participation of 22 countries, to debate and generate proposals on Climate Change and Gender Violence."
In particular, the participants presented initiatives to tackle food insecurity amid the COVID-19 pandemic through projects such as vegetable growing and hydroponics.
