About the event
In keeping with the theme of this year’s International Women’s Day, “Gender equality today for a sustainable tomorrow”, the CBD Secretariat is happy to announce the launch of its new publication, Best Practices in Gender and Biodiversity: Pathways for Multiple Benefits. This publication, produced with the generous support of the Government of Sweden, presents a compilation of in-depth case studies and concise snapshots illustrating initiatives from all over the world that are working to conserve and sustainably use biodiversity in ways that strengthen gender equality.
The publication outlines a series of key findings and messages, drawing from the ten case studies and 28 snapshots presented in the publication. These messages and findings are intended to help support and guide gender responsive biodiversity policy and action by countries and partners in the post-2020 period.
This event will provide a short introduction to the publication, followed by remarks from country and organizational representatives behind these initiatives, to share lessons learned in support of gender responsive implementation of the post-2020 global biodiversity framework.
