Gender Integration

Across Africa, women play critical land and natural resource management roles. However, these roles are typically unrecognized or undervalued. Minorities and disadvantaged groups are also integral to local conservation constituencies.

Therefore, the role of these groups is especially important to consider in the construction of sustainable conservation strategies. To achieve this, ABCG employs a participatory approach that seeks to provide improved access to opportunities (meetings, workshops, decision making on natural resource use, etc.) for women and vulnerable groups. This includes ensuring that gender considerations are included in project design and implementation.

By integrating gender dimensions into all thematic and crosscutting program components, ABCG aims to more explicitly address the issues that limit the ability of women and vulnerable populations to participate fully in conservation and natural resource management.
