In this webinar, IUCN, USAID, and a wide range of experts and leaders from across disciplines discuss these critical linkages, exploring policy frameworks, leveraging lessons and resources across sectors, and strategies for on-the-ground action to realize rights and resilience, together.
In eastern Uganda, where land is governed by a customary land tenure system, women experience violence when claiming land rights. Trocaire is working with the Land Equity Movement of Uganda (LEMU) and Soroti Catholic Diocese Integrated Development Organization (SOCADIDO) to respond to these challenges.
In Nepal many rural women are very dependent on natural resources such as firewood, fodder, water and traditional medicines, but they are often excluded from decision-making about their forests, and sometimes have difficulty accessing the resources they need. As part of its GESI work the Hariyo Ban Program realized it needed to tackle gender-based violence in order for women to participate more fully and safely in community forest management and sharing of forest benefits.
