WHY

The compilation of the COP gender-decision texts aims to inform decision-makers, negotiators, Indigenous Peoples and Local Communities, women, youth, civil society, business, and all stakeholders involved in the planning, monitoring, and implementation of the KM-GBF. It will also highlight the progress made in incorporating gender considerations since the inception of the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) across its various negotiation areas.

The gender-equality training module hopes to offer an additional tool for strengthening capacity, sharing, and learning on gender equality and gender-responsive implementation of the KM-GBF. The module is designed for civil society, governments, other stakeholders, and those interested in biodiversity conservation, women’s rights, gender equality, climate change, and sustainable development.
