IPLCs, gender & Biodiversity Webinars

The International Women Biodiversity Network, the International Indigenous Forum on Biodiversity (IIFB), the International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN) and Conservation International (CI) within the Inclusive Conservation Initiative (ICI) are organizing a series of three webinars on Indigenous Peoples and Local Communities on Linkages between Gender and Biodiversity. How can a gender-responsive approach be included in project cycle to conserve biodiversity?

The series of webinars, that are taking place on June 25, 26 and 27, 2024 from 9:00 to 11:00 AM Montreal time, follows three objectives:

  • Strengthen IPLC’s understanding on links between gender and biodiversity
  • Strengthen IPLC’s understanding of how to include the gender-responsive approach in the project cycle including the theory of change
  • Strengthen gender consideration in the IPLC’s organization policies, particularly women and youth.

The outcomes of the webinars will contribute to the development of a virtual course for broader community of IPLCs organizations to contribute to the implementation of the ICI and the implementation of the KMGBF, which promotes a gender-responsive approach including recognizing their equal rights and access to land and natural resources and their full, equitable, meaningful and informed participation and leadership at all levels of action, engagement, policy and decision-making related to biodiversity..

The first session addressed basic concepts related to gender responsible approach. The second session will focus con how the gender responsible approach can be included in a project cycle and the third session will be on how the gender responsible approach can be included in IPLCs policies.

Interpretation in English, Spanish and French will be available.

About the Inclusive Conservation Initiative (ICI)

The Inclusive Conservation Initiative (ICI)  is a project designed to support the leadership of Indigenous Peoples and Local Communities (IPLCs) in stewarding lands, waters and natural resources. By combining substantial investments in specific locations with support to magnify local results through global capacity building, policy influence and demonstration of large-scale impacts, ICI will catalyze the transformational changes needed to secure and enhance support for the contributions of IPLCs to biodiversity and other global environmental benefits (GEBs). A part of the GEF-7 Programming Directions Strategy’s Biodiversity focal area, ICI is built upon the principle that inclusive conservation requires that IPLCs are the main authors and implementers. At the same time, the project does not aim to define the concept of inclusive conservation and recognizes that this is also determined by IPLCs.
