This session will explore the gender dynamics in the context of climate change and natural resources management in conflict-affected countries, and reflect on opportunities for peacebuilding through women’s empowerment and enhanced participation in political and economic spaces related to natural resource management.
Main objectives are to improve understanding of the role of gender norms and power dynamics in natural resource governance to encourage integrated gender-responsive policy and programmatic approaches that incorporate gender, climate and state fragility considerations.
How do gender norms and power dynamics expose women to new climate-related risks or exacerbate existing challenges? What is the role of women in access, use and control of natural resources?
How does increased women’s participation in decision making over natural resource management contribute to peacebuilding?
How can gender-responsive initiatives in climate adaptation have a peacebuilding impact?
Peacebuilding practitioners, governments and international organizations, civil society organizations, including women-led organizations.
