The state of funding for women’s environmental action

This report demonstrates the funding gap for women and the environment, a missed opportunity for funders who are committed to a healthy and equitable world for all. Case studies illustrate both the work at the nexus of women's rights and environmental protection, and how funders are responding.

This 2018 mapping report by Global Greengrants Fund and Prospera International Network of Women’s Funds reveals that only 0.2 percent of all foundation funding focuses explicitly on women and the environment, and within that, biodiversity conservation is almost entirely overlooked – only one percent of the overall funding supports women in their conservation efforts; with the majority of funds going to agricultural and food security initiatives.

Thanks for this Report. I would like to contact you and discuss more about the opportunities for the women from the indigenous communities of NorthEast India - from the States of Assam, Meghalaya and Arunachal Pradesh.
