WEBINAR REPORT - Gender and Biodiversity Conservation

This webinar hosted by IIED was held on 13 November 2018. Participants heard from speakers from policy, NGO and research perspectives who addressed four questions looking back over ​the last 15 years. These were:

  1. ​To what extent has there been progress towards gender equality/equity in conservation (rhetoric and genuine change)? ​
  2. What has brought this about/constrained progress?​
  3. What difference is this making in terms of social and conservation outcomes?​
  4. Where are we going from here? ​
