Call for case studies: Enhancing the knowledge on the linkage between gender equality, women’s empowerment and the wise use, management and conservation of wetlands

The Secretariat of the Convention on Wetlands is currently developing a guidance document on how to integrate gender-responsive approaches into the implementation of the Convention in accordance with Resolution XIII.18 on Gender and wetlands.

Recognizing the importance of addressing gender equality and women’s empowerment, this guidance document will assist the Contracting Parties in fulfilling their Convention obligations and meeting their international commitments specifically SDG 5 (Gender Equality). To make the guidance more practical for its wider use, the Secretariat is requesting case studies as inputs to fill a critical knowledge gap on the linkage between gender equality, women’s empowerment, and the wise use, management, and conservation of wetlands.

Case studies should be uploaded online by 1 September 2020.
