Global Gender and Environment Outlook

United Nations Environment Programme (2016)

The GGEO provides an overview of current knowledge and gives a first set of answers to the following key policy-relevant questions: • What social forces are producing the changes seen in the environment, and are they gender-dependent? • What are the large-scale consequences of ongoing environmental changes for social systems and human security, and are these consequences genderdifferentiated? • What do future projections and outlooks look like, are they gender-differentiated, and will there be different outcomes for women and men? • What actions could be taken for a more sustainable future that would position women and men as equal agents in taking such actions, and which socio-economic factors could shape different outcomes and responses for women and men? We look forward to the uptake of GGEO’s findings throughout the environmental sector at international and national levels
