The Resilient, Inclusive and Sustainable Environments (RISE) grants challenge is the first-of-its-kind to address gender-based violence (GBV) in environment contexts and climate-related sectors. Read this factsheet for a summary review of progress to date.
Advancing Gender in the Environment (AGENT): Catalyzing change at all levels for equality and sustainability
The work presented in this annual review demonstrates that investments in gender-responsive knowledge, strategies, cooperation, and action across sectors strengthen opportunities to meet both gender equality and environment goals – with results during a key year of environmental policymaking.
Gender-Based Violence Prevention. A Results-Based Evaluation Framework
Framework designed for humanitarian agencies to analyze GBV risks, design results-oriented programs, and develop measurement frameworks and evaluation approaches to help demonstrate the effects of their GBV prevention interventions.
Climate crisis affects women, women affect climate struggle
Climate change has gender-differentiated impacts on women and men and can increase gender-based violence. This article presents the experiences of two climate activists from Türkiye at the forefront of climate and gender activism.
In Fiji, Reama Naco and Ulai Baya have been instrumental in the development of the first-ever government-supported Feedback, Grievance, and Redress Mechanism addressing gender-based risks (FGRM+) within a national Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation (REDD+) program. Hear from them on why GBV is important in climate action.
Groundbreakers: Women overcome bias and lead sustainable use of land and resources
Across India, Liberia, Malawi, Mozambique and Zambia, USAID is working on an Integrated Land and Resource Governance (ILRG) program, implementing ambitious partnerships with communities, governments, traditional leaders, civil society organizations, and the private sector to promote gender equality, understanding on GBV links and women’s empowerment in land tenure and resource governance.

Through its Cool Green Science platform, The Nature Conservancy (TNC) blogs about why and how gender-based violence is a conservation issue and provides insights and a new tool adapted for public use on taking a trauma-informed response as part of a broader effort to address GBV in conservation programs.
Addressing GBV in the context of the climate-biodiversity emergency: Leveraging and strengthening enabling policy frameworks for scaled-up rights-based action
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.
The International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) is a membership Union uniquely composed of both government and civil society organisations. It provides public, private and non-governmental organisations with the knowledge and tools that enable human progress, economic development and nature conservation to take place together. It harnesses the experience, resources and reach of its more than 1,400 Member organisations and the input of some 15,000 experts. IUCN is the global authority on the status of the natural world and the measures needed to safeguard it.
#Women's participation & decision-making in #forest management significantly improves forest conditions & #conservation. In particular, leadership by #IndigenousWomen is 🔑 to preserving life alongside thriving communities.
