WoMena

"WoMena is a non-profit organization that adapts innovative solutions for women and girls' reproductive health. The focus is on menstrual health, and resuable products such as menstrual cups and reusable pads. WoMena works in over 100 locations in Africa, focusing on Uganda. WoMena takes an evidence-based and evidence-generating approach, contributing to global knowledge and working with a wide range of partners. Menstruation is surrounded by shame and taboos and contributes to school dropout, poverty, health problems as well as environmental issues. WoMena goes beyond distribution of products, engaging with the wider community, for example parents, teachers, health providers, and beyond to policy makers. Males are particularly important. Cups are widely adopted and continuation rates are high, girls report going from a state of fear and shame to freedom ("Now I can ride my bike freely"). Policy changes are made both at national and international level, for example UNICEF."

Harvestpack

Founded in 2012, Harvest Pack is a 501(c)(3) humanitarian hunger relief nonprofit organization. Harvest Pack addresses food insecurity by supporting volunteers in bringing meal packing events to their local communities. Harvest Pack’s healthy meals are then donated to established nonprofit partners who distribute to food insecure communities. Though Harvest Pack’s primary focus is fighting hunger in the U.S., we are proud to support global needs with selected international organizations as well.

The Economics of Climate Change

Climate change is one of the most significant challenges humanity faces, but economics can help us understand the problem and how to address it. This talk will address the science of climate change (by way of background), discuss the economic costs associated with climate change, present a set of policy options for mitigating these costs, and provide evidence on the real world experience with some of these policy tools.
