Gender equality and equity are matters of fundamental human rights and social justice, as well as a pre-condition for sustainable development and the achievement of IUCN’s mission.


How we engage

Recognising the value of gender equality and of women’s vital roles as decision makers, natural resource managers, stakeholders, caregivers and knowledge holders across sectors and at all levels is key to effective, efficient, equitable and sustainable environmental solutions.

IUCN champions a gender-responsive approach by providing capacity building and technical support across sectors. IUCN identifies and overcomes gender gaps to enable better natural resource governance and conservation.
