ProblemAsia's remarkable economic growth has brought many benefits through higher incomes and employment, but this growth has also fueled threats to ecosystems and biodiversity through habitat degradation and biodiversity loss. These threats affect men and women differently. The knowledge about how men and women manage resources from ecosystems is relatively low, which means that many national policies and projects fail in including the different needs and perspective of local communities. In order to effectively plan for the best sustainable solutions, a gender perspective is required.
ApproachLove Frankie supported UN Environment's mission to strengthen the recognition of women in ecosystem management through the production of a powerful video series to make the invisible role and contribution of women in conservation of biodiversity more visible. The videos aimed to bridge the gap between the communities and the policy makers by spotlighting the challenges but also the solutions to biodiversity conservation at the local level.
ImpactThe video series, by highlighting the traditional knowledge and skills in managing natural resources has allowed practitioners and policymakers to consider everyone’s capacity, skills and knowledge in the design and implementation of sustainable solutions moving forward.
