Nature-Based Solutions that Promote Gender

30 March 2022


To conclude ADB’s Gender Month celebration, the Gender and Environment Thematic Groups hosted a webinar on “Nature-based Solutions (NbS) that Promote Gender Equality” to highlight innovative and gender-responsive pathways to address critical environmental and social issues, including climate change adaption and mitigation, ecosystem degradation, and biodiversity loss. Panelists from Oxfam, WWF, and ILO shared NbS good practices that are led and implemented by women, and called for further support for women’s economic participation to scale-up solutions and achieve sustainable development.
