Gender and the Environment

Gender Plan Action

The Plan outlines a framework for integrating a gender perspective within all UNEP’s Divisions, Branches, Units and activities for the years 2006 through 2010. It establishes strategies with reachable targets and proposes instruments to address gender concerns in UNEP’s technical areas.

The Plan pursues three strategic objectives:

  • Human equality, equity and rights are well respected across gender.
  • Promote equality of opportunity and treatment between women and men in the environmental sector at national, regional, and global levels.
  • Increase the quality and efficiency of UNEP’s work in environmental conservation and promotion of sustainable development.
