Gender responsive environmental policy

Women4Biodiversity is working in addressing women’s rights in biodiversity related discussions of the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD). The main goal is to ensure a gender-responsive biodiversity agreement. It further aims to harness the strength of the collective voices of women groups, networks and their agencies to develop and follow-through an advocacy strategy at the CBD to achieve the goal with the realization of the needs to identify and strengthen synergies with other relevant biodiversity related agreements to be coherent, supportive, collective in advancing gender equality and women’s empowerment in these international discussions.

Women’s Leadership

Women4Biodiversity coordinates the CBD Women Caucus and recognizes the fundamental need for women’s equal participation in biodiversity related decision-making. There are always efforts being put forth to advocate to the SCBD the need to support the participation and leadership of women in the UN biodiversity negotiations, particularly from countries most impacted by environmental degradation and climate change.
