Why a gender approach is key to sustainable landscape and food systems

25 Jun 2020

Time is running out to solve the complex and far-reaching environmental and climate induced challenges facing our planet. Issues such as climate change, biodiversity loss, and deforestation affect us all, but they differ from one region to another – affecting the most vulnerable, especially women in rural areas where agriculture is the main source of income. In this session at GLF Bonn 2020, women known as the Guardians of the Rainforest, share their experiences on the ground, the daily challenges they face and the solutions they adopted to mitigate and adapt to the changing environment all while trying to preserve their environmental heritage.

Originally titled “Why a gender approach is key to sustainable landscape and food production systems”, this session hosted by the Rainforest Alliance aired on June 4th, 2020 at the GLF Bonn Digital Conference.
