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

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 remains the main activity generating income to millions of farmers. This session will be a moment where women, Guardians of the Rainforest, share their experiences on the ground, the challenges they face on a daily basis and the solutions they adopted to mitigate and adapt to the changing environment while trying to preserve their environmental heritage.

Main session: Strong alliances for a sustainable future
