This webinar was held in partnership with USAID and in collaboration with IUCN Commission on Education (CEC), Commission on Environmental, Economic and Social Policy (CEESP), Commission on Ecosystem Management (CEM) and Species Survival Commission (SSC).
A new call for proposals for the Resilient, Inclusive and Sustainable Environments (RISE) grants challenge is now open for applications.
Hosted by IUCN and USAID under their partnership on Advancing Gender in the Environment (AGENT) and its Gender-based Violence and Environment Linkages Center (GBV-ENV Center), RISE aims to support evidence-based strategies to address GBV in environment and climate-related programming. In 2022, RISE priorities are locally or community-led or driven interventions that generate learning on promising practices in climate-vulnerable contexts, in relation to protecting the rights and safety of environmental defenders, as well as in adaptive management in the context of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Targeted geographies in 2022 are: Central America and the Caribbean, Eastern and Southern Africa and South and Southeast Asia.
