Recognizing the importance of highlighting gender from an environmental perspective, and in response to a call from the Network of Women Ministers and Leaders for the Environment (NWMLE), UN Environment made a commitment at Rio+20 United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development and the future we want to undertake a ground-breaking global gender and environmental assessment. 

The Global Gender and Environment Outlook is for the first time provide a comprehensive overview of the linkages between gender and environment in the contexts of SDGs and 2030 Development agenda. It is expected to enable better understanding of the environment through a gender lens, support better integration of gender perspectives in development and implementation of environmental policies at international and national levels, and drive impact through partnerships.
