In April 2020, anticipating a rise in gender-based violence (GBV) in relation to the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, the IUCN Global Programme on Governance and Rights prepared an information note to support awareness amongst conservation and sustainable development stakeholders about potential risks and to consider ways to anticipate and address them. Over the last few months, significant evidence has emerged in relation to these trends, as well as some promising practice and recommendations to inform future gender-responsive conservation and sustainable development efforts. This second-edition information note thus brings together the latest evidence, examples for action and recommendations for conservation and sustainable development decision-makers and practitioners.
Environmental Issues and Themes: Food Security
This paper provides an overview of recent initiatives to measure the gender-environment nexus, identifies priorities and takes stock of related data and capacity gaps in the Asia-Pacific region. The paper puts forward a proposal for a Gender-Environment Indicator Set in Asia and the Pacific, which includes indicators from the global Sustainable Development Goals framework and beyond, capturing issues of particular relevance for the gender-environment nexus in the region.
Producida por la Unión Internacional para la Conservación de la Naturaleza (UICN) con la Agencia de los Estados Unidos para el Desarrollo Internacional (USAID) en el marco de la iniciativa Avance de las Dimensiones de Género en el Medio Ambiente (AGENT) este estudio presenta los hallazgos sobre los vínculos entre la violencia de género y el medio ambiente para apoyar acciones fortalecidas en los sectores ambientales y de desarrollo sostenible.
The purpose of this Guide is to equip FAO and partner staff with information on gender- based violence relevant to their work and provide practical guidance on how to design and deliver food security and nutrition programmes in ways that prevent and mitigate GBV and contribute to the protection of survivors and those at risk.
