This document contains a description of the gender-specific challenges involved in implementing the Convention on Biological Diversity and the experience gained by German cooperation in this area. This document considers key issues regarding biodiversity from a gender perspective, the inter-dependency between gender and biodiversity in CBD work programs, changes in rules governing access to genetic resources, other legally binding international agreements on gender and biological diversity, and recommendations for how a gender perspective needs to be incorporated into the CBD.
This report discusses the historical context of including a gender perspective in the UN Convention on Biodiversity, UN Framework Convention on Climate Change, and the UN Convention to Combat Desertification, known as the Rio Conventions.It also explains the specifics of each convention’s inclusion of a gender perspective.
This document seeks to provide an overview of the relationship between gender and realisation of the Convention on Biological Diversity’s objectives, in particular the objective on the fair and equitable sharing of benefits derived from access to and use of biological and genetic resources and traditional knowledge.
