IUCN is committed to expanding the knowledge base on gender and environment and continuously produces new research, along with tools and methodologies, to advance gender-responsive sustainable development and conservation goals.
With decades of experience addressing gender equality issues within the environmental sector, the IUCN Global Programme on Governance and Rights team speaks at conferences, leads trainings and provides technical support for building capacity, strategy development and implementation.
Facilitated via participatory, multi-stakeholder processes, with full support from the requesting/hosting agency or Government, Gender Action Plans can serve to unite policies, programmes and stakeholders/staff around a common issue—and, specifically, map steps necessary to meet a goal.
IUCN’s approaches foster real change, ensuring gender equality is advanced and gender considerations are fully integrated toward effective environmental policies and programmes.
Roots for the Future: the Landscape and Way Forward on Gender and Climate Change presents the latest research, data, strategies, and results on gender and climate change policymaking and programming.
