Global Learning – People and Planet: Gender, Environment and Climate

On the 16 – 18 March 2021 was held online the Global Learning Event “People and Planet: Gender, Environment and Climate “.

By moving from business as usual to actually making a difference, the global learning event served to facilitate new innovative local, regional and global partnerships, and to enable the mobilisation and collective action for a more sustainable planet.
The event facilitated global, cross regional and regional dialogue and shared experiences e.g. on why a gender analysis is imperative to understand the consequences of environmental degradation, loss of biodiversity and climate change.

Climate Change & Gender equality
Climate Change affects all of us but in different ways. Gender equality as a lens for climate and environmental work ensures women’s full and effective participation and equal opportunities for leadership at all levels of decision-making in political, economic and public life. Women carry significant knowledge about preserving biodiversity and natural resource management and are as such important agents of change.

The event was organized by Sida Partnership Forum in collaboration with UN Women, UNEP, the Swedish Dialogue Institute for the Middle East and North Africa, and Stockholm Environment Institute.

Maria Basova, CCB’s Program Manager attended the event.
Maria Suma, the gender consultant at CCB’s Programme “Creating and sustaining positive change in key thematic areas related to water – strengthening the role of NGOs in Belarus and Russia”, presented CCB’s experience in addressing the gender and environmental issues together at the session “Digging deeper: Ecological masculinities and practical action”.
