Gender and REDD+ Case Study Series

This Gender and REDD+ Case Study Series was prepared for IUCN with the support of the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) via the Gender Equality for Climate Change Opportunities (GECCO)* initiative. GECCO* leverages advancements in women’s empowerment and gender equality through, and for, the benefit of climate change and development outcomes and is designed to provide an array of support options for national, regional, and global activities that advance women’s empowerment and gender equality. This series included six geographically diverse case studies on gender mainstreaming and women’s empowerment through REDD+.

 

*The former Gender Equality for Climate Change Opportunities (GECCO) initiative is now part of a broader program, Advancing Gender in the Environment (AGENT), which aims to improve development outcomes by strengthening environmental programing through gender integration and achieving gender equality outcomes.
