UN-REDD Methodological Brief on Gender
This methodological brief on gender defines the approach of the UN-REDD Programme on gender equality and women’s empowerment. It provides guidance and concrete entry points to UN-REDD Programme partner countries and their support teams on how the Gender Approach detailed in the 2016-2020 UN-REDD Programme Strategic Framework can be effectively operationalized and monitored. Through action-oriented guidance and illustrative case studies and country examples, it can also assist partner countries to realize the gender equality provisions contained in international agreements on REDD+, including on safeguards, as well as contribute to Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) #5 on gender equality. Also included is a list of the types of assistance UN-REDD can provide to UN-REDD country-level stakeholders, and correspondingly regional and country teams, to help them integrate gender-responsive action into national REDD+ processes.
