Gender Equality in Shared Resources, Joint Solutions
To learn more about SRJS
Around the world, natural ecosystems provide both habitat for wildlife species and important goods and services for people, such as fresh water and climate resilience. However, unsustainable production and the effects of climate change are increasing pressure on ecosystems worldwide. Sustainable development requires aligning the interests of different stakeholders to strike a balance between economic, environmental and social values. In Shared Resources, Joint Solutions (SRJS), almost 200 civil society organisations across 26 landscapes in 16 countries are working passionately and collaboratively towards this goal.
Local and indigenous communities, and specific groups such as women and youth, often have insufficient access to and involvement in decision making over natural resources. Therefore, gender equality and social inclusion are guiding principles of SRJS, as advancing gender equality and social equity are matters of fundamental human rights and are globally recognised as prerequisites for effective, long-term sustainable development.
