Why is gender important for REDD+?

IUCN has produced an excellent new video unpacking why women’s resource rights and decision-making need to be taken into account in REDD+ development.

This video was prepared for IUCN with the support of the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) via the Gender Equality for Climate Change Opportunities (GECCO) initiative. This video supports a series of six geographically diverse case studies on gender mainstreaming and women’s empowerment through REDD+.
