A Fair Climate: Gender Equity in REDD+
This training video targets community forestry practitioners to improve gender equity on the ground. The video explains the concept of gender equity in the context of forest communities and highlights best practices for achieving gender equity.
Shot in Vientiane in Lao PDR and the Baan Thung Yao community forest in Thailand, the video features grassroots and institutional knowledge and experience, on forest governance and management practices. The video is produced by USAID-funded programs Grassroots Equity and Enhanced Networks in Mekong (GREEN Mekong) and Lowering Emissions in Asia's Forests program (USAID-LEAF).
The best practices highlighted in the video are sourced from a joint study produced by Women Organizing for Change in Agriculture and Natural Resource Management (WOCAN), the United Nations Collaborative Programme on Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation (UN-REDD) and the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) funded Lowering Emissions in Asia’s Forests (USAID-LEAF) project.
The video is also informed by the case study produced by RECOFTC – Gender and community forests in a changing landscape: Lessons from Ban Thung Yao, Thailand
