Policy Dialogue on Forest Landscape Restoration and Gender Equality

Thursday, November 30, 2017


The current understanding of Forest Landscape Restoration (FLR) moves beyond the ecosystem-based approach of previous years and defines restoration as “a planned process to regain ecological integrity and enhance human well-being in deforested or degraded landscapes”. Gender equality and women’s rights are critical for addressing these dual objectives.

This Workshop will:

  • Bring together a wide range of stakeholders working on both FLR and the promotion of gender equality and women's rights to learn about gender-responsive forest restoration
  • Generate dialogue on the opportunities and challenges of addressing gender equality in FLR
  • Identify contextual and empirically grounded approaches to advancing gender responsive FLR in East African countries
