Women are advancing the march to protect biodiversity
Ahead of the November UN Biodiversity Conference (CBD), IIED has launched a series of blogs and interviews illustrating the role, influence and impact of women working to safeguard the world’s biodiversity.
From providing clean air to fresh water, and fertile soils to nutritious food, biodiversity underpins the health of our planet and the well-being of those living in it. A new series of articles from IIED running up to the UN summit tells the stories of women across the world who are working to conserve and manage our earth’s precious biodiversity.
The first blog in the collection by CBD executive secretary Dr Cristiana Paşca Palmer, explores how women – as agents of change and front runners – can be empowered to build new pathways to sustainability.
