This event aims to raise the awareness of BES-Net's stakeholders on the critical importance of applying a gender lens in biodiversity conservation and share experiences of BES-Net’s partner countries on mainstreaming gender considerations into their work at the science-policy-practice interface. The webinar will be hosted by BES-Net via the Sub-Global Assessment Network (SGAN) to reach a wide range of stakeholders and knowledge holders engaged in ecosystem assessments. The SGAN aims to build the capacity of its members, including practitioners, researchers and policymakers, to undertake and use ecosystem assessments.
The webinar will take place on Tuesday 20 September 2022 at 14:00–15:30 BST.
The event will be delivered online through Zoom. It will be recorded and stored on the NEA Initiative website. Interpretation in Spanish, French and Russian will be provided.
To showcase the experience of BES-Net and its partners in mainstreaming gender into the process of generating and applying knowledge on BES and its benefits for people.
1. Provide participants with an overview of the status of mainstreaming gender in the post-2020 Global Biodiversity Framework and a brief contextual outline of the gender-environment nexus, including the key challenges and opportunities for delivering multiple benefits.
2. Provide a platform for BES-Net partner countries to share their approaches and lessons learned on mainstreaming gender considerations into the process of BES knowledge generation and application.
3. Host a panel discussion with gender experts and BES practitioners on best practice approaches for gender-transformative knowledge generation.
This event is co-organised by the Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services Network (BES-Net) and the Sub-Global Assessment Network (SGAN).
