Environmental change affects the lives of men and women in different ways due to existing gender dynamics and inequalities. There is increasing understanding of the interactions between gender and the environment, including between efforts to ensure gender equality and environmental protection, and of the close links between gender equality and sustainable development. This course provides a general introduction to gender and the environment including in relation to issues such as access to land, natural resources, biodiversity, food, energy and sanitation, and the exacerbation of gender inequalities caused by climate change and biodiversity loss. The course focuses particularly on the way gender has been addressed under multilateral environmental agreements (MEAs), including in relation to access to resources; participation in relevant decisions; mainstreaming; and access to support.
