Embedding gender justice in environmental action: where to start?

Environmental justice organisations increasingly recognise the importance of advancing gender equality and women's rights as an intrinsic part of their work. They understand that environmental justice cannot be achieved without gender justice. Securing respect for women's rights, including their access to and control over natural resources, is not only crucial within a rights-based perspective, it is also a prerequisite for successfully realising environmental justice.

But the big question is how. Where do you start? How do you translate your organisational ambitions into concrete action? How do you adjust your focus and your day-to-day work? 

In the publication "Embedding gender justice in environmental action: where to start?" we offer 10 key recommendations for environmental organisations that want to step-up their work toward gender justice. Alongside each recommendation is the concrete experience of a partner organisation of Both ENDS, many of which were involved in the GAGGA programme.
