According to meteorologists, climate change fueled intense rainfall and extreme weathering are becoming the norm in northern China. Historic levels of rain were recorded this past year across Shanxi province.
in an interview with The Guardian, Professor Faith Chan of the University of Nottingham in the eastern Chinese city of Ningbo said,
“Although we still need more scientific research into this phenomenon, so far it all indicates a trend that extreme weather and intense rainfall will be a norm in northern China. China has to act fast.”

At #COP26, education advocates are calling attention to how extreme weather, intensified by climate change, disadvantages girls + young women in low income countries compared to boys. They say more needs to be done to address this: @malala @MalalaFund
Girls and young women are disproportionately affected by extreme weather events, particularly in middle-to-low income countries. As climate change propels these extreme weather events girls and young women will feel the worse of its impact. 
COP26 hosted a panel about education and gender equality where Malala Yousafzai spoke about her international non-profit organization— the Malala Fund. The organization estimates that climate-related events prevented at least 4 million girls in lower-income countries from finishing their education in 2021. Those numbers are expected to increase as climate-driven extreme weather becomes more frequent and intense. 
Climate change is considered a “threat multiplier” to the inequality girls and women already face. Women and girls are more likely to skip school to assist after extreme weather events and are more likely to put their health on the line when there is a lack of resources. 
These numbers and examples are a reminder that the most vulnerable are almost always the most affected in the face of environmental disaster and should be at the forefront of our climate change solutions. — Abbie Veitch
