WOCAN’s 2017-2019 Strategic Plan intends to not only respond to changes and challenges, but to lead the way in offering new models and award-winning approaches to harness our new realities in service to our mission.Over the next five years, we will assess our highest impact programs and target those for organizational focus, establish them to be best in class, and create multiple entry points for more institutions to step into gender-inclusive futures.
It is important for women leaders, especially those in forest-dependent communities, to be aware of discussions and decisions on climate change, especially REDD+, and participate in the discussions and decision-making processes.

This policy brief highlights specific challenges that prevent the inclusion of women and gender perspectives in the forest sector and REDD+, it also presents relevant good practices of women’s inclusion in forest and other land use sectors and presented specific recommendations for policy interventions. Good policies alone are not sufficient to achieve results.
