I am Fakhria Latifi, graduated from faculty of Law and Political Science and get my master degree in Public Policy and Administration. I have started my job from IRACSC have worked in difference organizations and worked as assistant professor in faculty of Public Policy and Administration in Kabul University, Gowharshad Private University and Mashhal University. I have Participated in several Trainings and International Law Moot Court Competition” in Washington D.C and in the 23rd NISPAcee Annual Conference in Tbilisi- Georgia.

Fortunately now I am working as a researcher assisstant in TU darmstadt.

The focus of my research project lies in investigating the factors that contribute to the disproportionate impacts of climate change on women in Afghanistan. Afghanistan is particularly vulnerable to the detrimental effects of climate change, such as floods, droughts, and landslides. By examining the socio-economic, cultural, and political factors that contribute to this heightened vulnerability, I aim to approach a deeper understanding of the connection between climate change and gender inequality in the Afghan case. Subsequent research will conduct comparative analyses with adjacent nations such as Pakistan, Iran, and Kyrgyzstan to investigate their public initiatives aimed at improving conditions for women.
