USAID LEAF, WOCAN & UNREDD Organizes the Asia Pacific Workshop on Women’s Inclusion for Sustainable Forests and Climate: What works?

Tuesday, March 25, 2014 - 9:00pm to Wednesday, March 26, 2014 - 9:00pm

(Asia/Bangkok)

On 26-27 March, USAID LEAF Program, WOCAN & UNREDD organizes the Asia Pacific Workshop on Women’s Inclusion for Sustainable Forests and Climate: What works? in Bangkok, Thailand.  This workshop is part of the Joint Initiative between WOCAN, LEAF and UN-REDD established to identify practical entry points for women’s inclusion and gender perspectives in REDD+ in the Asia-Pacific Region. The overall goal of the Initiative is to enhance the overall effectiveness of REDD+ through greater inclusion of women and gender perspectives in all relevant policies and practices. A series of interventions has been taken to map out and generate evidence and dialogues under the Joint Initiative that will be shared to achieve regional impacts.

Building on these activities, this workshop will showcase several other innovative programs, projects, and best practices from forestry and other land-use sectors that will inform key lessons for integration of gender perspectives and women’s inclusion in forestry sector and their replication in the Asia-Pacific region. Further, the workshop will also identify key regional capacity gaps to be addressed to better integrate gender perspectives and women’s inclusion in forestry sectors, within the emerging framework of climate change and REDD+.

The objectives of the workshops are

  • Promote common understanding of the linkages between integration of gender perspectives and women’s inclusion in the forestry sector within the emerging framework of climate change and REDD+.
  • Share existing evidence and good practices that enhance women’s inclusion and integrate gender perspectives in forestry sector.
  • Review the challenges and opportunities for gender integration in the forestry sector as it relates to climate change and REDD+.
  • Generate shared commitment to women’s inclusion and gender equality as a key mechanism for sustaining forestry sectors, including in climate change and REDD+ activities.
  • Identify and document regional capacity needs for greater integration of gender perspectives and women’s inclusion in forest sectors including in climate change and REDD+.
