Synopsis

The international community is increasingly recognizing the range of ways in which gender differences and inequalities shape how we take decisions and our impact on the natural world. Deeply entrenched social norms advantage more powerful and dominant groups over others, and most often men and boys over women and girls. Tackling these long-standing inequalities and structural barriers is a complex process that requires dedicated attention and resourcing. This collection of best practices
shows us how such targeted action is also critical to achieve sustainable and transformative results for biodiversity. It includes two cases (in Nepal and Costa Rica), where GBV was identified as an obstacle to biodiversity conservation and concrete actions were adopted to prevent and respond to it.
