Gender Considerations and Approaches: Filling Knowledge and Data Gaps
Systematic review that outlines evidence and highlights gaps in knowledge on the impacts that adoption of clean and/or efficient cookstoves and fuels can have on reducing the risk and incidence of gender-based violence (GBV) in humanitarian settings.
Around the world, rooted in discriminatory gender norms and shrouded in impunity, gender-based violence (GBV) occurs in all societies as a means of control, subjugation and exploitation that further feeds gender inequality. Across environment issues and sectors, GBV is interlinked with environmental threats.
La violencia de género está generalizada en todo el mundo, en todas las sociedades, contextos y sectores. El estrés socioeconómicas de la pandemia del COVID-19 y las restricciones de movimiento han aumentado considerablemente los riesgos de violencia de género, en particular la violencia doméstica. Esta Nota Informativa ha sido preparada por el Programa Mundial de Gobernanza y Derechos de la UICN.
Gender-based violence is pervasive around the world, in all societies, contexts and sectors. The socio-economic stresses of the COVID-19 pandemic and restrictions on movement have significantly increased gender-based violence risks, particularly domestic violence. This Information Note is prepared by the IUCN Global Programme on Governance and Rights. It provides overview information for promoting awareness among environmental organisations and will be updated regularly.
Reviewing over 1,000 sources of information, gathering nearly 100 case study submissions and having analyzed survey responses from over 300 practitioners along with numerous expert-informant interviews, this study focuses on three major areas where GBV-environment linkages act as barriers to equitable, effective, rights-based conservation and sustainable development: access and control over natural resources; environmental pressures and threats; and environmental action to conserve, defend and protect natural resources.
