Around the world, men and women use natural resources differently. As a result, they are affected differently by changes to these resources. Yet too often, these differences are not understood or acknowledged.

Meanwhile, women are fr​equently denied access to resources, have limited power in decision-making, and their knowledge and ideas are often discounted.

Conservation International (CI) works at all levels to help ensure that men and women can fully engage in, and equitably benefit from, conservation and livelihoods initiatives.

EditItem Title:Supporting indigenous women
EditItem Link:[Optional]
EditItem Text:

With a wealth of ecological knowledge, indigenous women play a key role in conservation. Unfortunately, they usually have limited access to land rights, health care, formal education and decision-making processes. With livelihoods directly reliant on nature, they are highly vulnerable to climate change and environmental degradation. CI supports indigenous women in conservation initiatives through fellowships, demonstration projects and partnerships with indigenous women’s networks.
