Addressing GBV in the context of the climate-biodiversity emergency: Leveraging and strengthening enabling policy frameworks for scaled-up rights-based action

Moderated by:



Gender-blind climate and environment-focused policies and implementation frameworks can inadvertently create conditions for heightened gender risks, including GBV, and miss creating powerful opportunities for realizing rights and resilience. In the lead-up to the 66th meeting of the Commission on the Status of Women (CSW66) and the resumed sessions under the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD), IUCN and USAID hosted diverse partners in this high-level moderated discussion amongst leading GBV and environment policy-makers, donors, and practitioners. Together, speakers explored the existing, emerging, and urgently needed policy frameworks and enabling conditions that are fundamental to facilitate collaborative rights-based action to address GBV and combat climate change and biodiversity loss.
