Global Forum on Environment: Mainstreaming Gender and Empowering Women for Environmental Sustainability
This OECD Global Forum on Environment focuses on "Mainstreaming Gender and Empowering Women for Environmental Sustainability". It will identify and propose ways to capitalise on synergies between environmental policies and economic and social goals, such as achieving gender equality and women’s empowerment.
It will also highlight gender specific impacts of environmental degradation and discuss how a gender lens could reduce the overall environmental footprint.
The two-day Forum will bring together policy makers and experts from OECD Member and Partner countries to share best practices and discuss policy challenges. Representatives from business, inter-governmental organisations, research centres, civil society organisations and relevant institutions are invited to join the discussions.
Participants will have an opportunity to discuss needed transformations at global, national and local levels to achieve both environmental and gender equality goals.
