Women play essential roles in using and managing biodiversity and natural resources in landscapes, forests and oceans across the globe.

Promoting policies, programs and institutions that enable women to participate in decision-making and equitably share landscape resources will increase benefits for everyone and help preserve biodiversity.

Supporting women to—alongside men—participate and benefit equally in these landscapes can help meet today’s food security challenges.
