The Art of implementation: Gender and Climate Change

For many years there has been the assumption that the negative impacts of climate change and the efforts to mitigate them have similar effects on both women and men. However, the world has progressively recognized that women and men experience climate change differently, and that gender inequalities worsen the coping capacity of women and societies as a whole.

Gouvernance multi-acteurs et partenariat : Suivi-évaluation participatif et transformation économique dans les Forêts Modèles

Community based integrated water resource management to address climate change in the Thar desert, India

India´s Marwar region, located in the Great Indian Thar Desert, is the most densely populated arid zone in the world. The economy of the region has traditionally revolved around animal husbandry and subsistence agriculture, mostly rain-fed, while its primary ecological resources have been mostly rain-fed water bodies, pastures, grazing lands, and sacred groves. Rainfall averages 200mm; climatic extremes such as droughts are a recurring phenomenon.

Stratégie de reboisement par contrat pour la séquestration du carbone et la sécurité alimentaire durable

Au Burkina Faso, la création et la gestion de puits de carbone par les reboisements fait partie des stratégies de lutte contre le changement climatique. Mais le faible taux de survie relatif (20%), en moyenne, des arbres plantés durant les campagnes de reboisement limite les possibilités de séquestration du carbone. C´est pourquoi, SOS SAHEL International Burkina Faso (SOSSIBF) met en œuvre une démarche innovante depuis une décennie qui a révolutionné les reboisements dans ses zones d´intervention. Il s´agit du « reboisement par contrat ».

Ecopsychology Camp: Cultivating Ecological and Psychological Resiliency

Ecopsychology is a transdisciplinary field of inquiry predicated on a belief that humanity is a part of nature. It bridges the sciences and humanities in order to stimulate insight, creativity and imagination; foster a mature, empathic and ethical awareness; utilize ecological, biological and psychological principles essential to sustainability; and recognizes that all of life's systems: personal, social, ecological, economic, and mechanistic are interdependent and linked through multiple synergistic relationships.

Ecopsychology Camp will explore the human ecosystem through five main ecological principles that will provide images, metaphors and ideas for how we can address plaguing issues in culture and conservation with more innovative, creative and ecosystemic solutions.

La Biodiversidad desde la visión de género de las Mujeres Indígenas

El programa de la UICN a nivel mundial describe claramente la dependencia directa e indirecta de la humanidad sobre la biodiversidad. Así también se conoce que los beneficios de la naturaleza, no son distribuidos equitativamente. En esta lógica las políticas y la gobernanza de la conservación de la biodiversidad deben reconocer efectivamente a estos actores y sus niveles de dependencia, pero además de la gran relevancia que tienen en estas condiciones las mujeres.

From Good Intentions to Action: National Implementation on Gender and Climate Change

Women’s historic disadvantages, limited access and control over decision-making, environmental and economic resources, and their restricted rights make them more vulnerable to climate change. However, this disproportionate burden of climate change on women can be countered by empowerment and recognition.

Women have important primary roles as managers of forests, land, water, and other natural resources. This position makes them powerful agents of change in formulating adaptation and mitigation measures. Women are part of the solution.
