In the first-ever IUCN World Conservation Congress thematic session focused on understanding and addressing gender-based violence (GBV) in relation to environmental issues and threats such as climate change, member organizations discussed the steps they are taking to safeguard staff, partners and beneficiaries; tackle discriminatory norms that allow for or employ violence; and cooperate across sectors to better advance rights-based gender-responsive programming and results.
This International Indigenous Women's Day, hear from Lola Cabnal, Asociación Ak’ Tenamit, about the intrinsic links Indigenous women have with Mother Earth -- and how gender-based violence disrupts dignity, safety and agency at different levels, including in the defense of the environment. Lola Cabnal also calls upon the global community to support Indigenous-led solutions and actions, and to support the realization of Indigenous rights to address links.
See this profile on Amelia Arreguín, an activist from Mexico working in various advocacy spheres on women's and girl's human rights across the environment sector, including the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) Women's Caucus. Hear more on how biodiversity policy can address GBV challenges.
In Kenya and Peru, IUCN Members are working with local partners through the USAID Resilient, Inclusive & Sustainable Environments (RISE) Challenge to address GBV in environment-related programming. See a short story on how Conservation International, PROMSEX, Kenya Wildlife Conservancies Association, Fauna & Flora International, and others are taking action to protect people and biodiversity.
