Women as Environmental Stewards: The Experience of the Small Grants Programme

Cover for Women as Environmental Stewards: The Experience of the Small Grants Programme
Women make up half of the world’s population and are fundamental to the achievement of global environmental benefits and the Sustainable Development Goals. As primary caretakers of households and communities, women have highly specialized and valuable knowledge for the conservation and management of natural resources. At the same time, they are often the most impacted by environmental degradation and climate-related events. At its core, the Small Grants Programme believes that women are important agents of change and should be meaningfully involved in environmental programming.
