Gender and the Environment Building Evidence and Policies to Achieve the SDGs

This document can also be found on the official website of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OCED) Library: https://www.oecd-ilibrary.org/ . The report provides an overview of the gender-environment nexus, looking into data and evidence gaps, economic and well-being benefits as well as governance and justice aspects. The analysis is conducted using the Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) Framework. Nine environment-related SDGs are examined under a gender-environment lens, covering topics such as sustainable agriculture and fisheries, biodiversity protection, ecosystem management, clean water and sanitation, affordable and clean energy, sustainable infrastructure and inclusive cities, responsible consumption and production, and climate action. This mapping exercise aims at building the evidence and help countries identify possible future work on gender mainstreaming in environmental policies.
