New Times for Women and Gender Issues in Biodiversity Conservation and Climate Justice


  • Isis Alvarez


  • Simone Lovera



Abstract Despite early recognition of women’s vital role in biodiversity conservation and increased resilience to climate change at the international policy level, only recently the Conference of the Parties to the Convention on Biodiversity has taken some concrete steps to mainstream gender in different biodiversity policies. It is expected that this increased recognition will lead to new policy approaches to enhance women’s participation in tackling biodiversity loss and climate change. Such approaches can contribute to climate justice by supporting financial and other forms of support to community-driven, ecosystem-based climate change mitigation and resilience initiatives that foster women’s rights, needs, roles and aspirations.
