With the GBF´s Target 23 on gender equality, the CBD becomes the first environmental treaty to have a specific target on women’s rights. It embeds a gender-responsive approach in which all women and girls have equal opportunities and capacity to contribute to the GBF’s objectives. This includes recognition of their equal rights and access to land and natural resources, and their full, equal, meaningful and informed participation and leadership at all levels of action, involvement, decision-making and policy-making related to biodiversity. In addition, COP 15 adopted a new 2030 Gender Action Plan that will serve as a guide for realizing the goal of gender equality in biodiversity policy.

Thank you for sharing, Ana, and congratulations on this collective achievement! As you mentioned in the article, it's definitely a step in the right direction!

We have a WildHub member @Emily Rampling who is currently working to create a "Women's Rights at Work" document for a conservation NGO in the Republic of Congo. She is asking if anyone has anything that she could build on; with your background in law, would you perhaps have any advice for her? Please find her full question through the link below:

Many thanks in advance for your help!
