Gender Responsive and Inclusive Conservation
Gender Responsive and Inclusive Conservation.
The role of women and marginalized communities residing in Nepal’s remote high mountains and fringe areas of national parks and buﬀer zones are very crucial in safeguarding natural resources given that they are the ones living in the frontlines of conservation. These people on the other hand have limited livelihoods options which has made them more vulnerable from any changes in the quality and quantity of natural resource. Over the years, WWF Nepal has taken meaningful steps in empowering women and marginalized communities to further nurture their stewardship in biodiversity conservation thereby ensuring its conservation programs promote the GESI agenda.
