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 frequently 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.
