Key Partners in Sustainable and Equitable Development: Resource materials on women and sustainable development
Women Key Partners.pdf (102.1Kb)
This report responds to Commonwealth mandates by producing training materials on women and sustainable development. It extrapolates, from selected "success stories," the common lessons for learning and teaching about the effective integration of environment and gender. The success stories demonstrate that women have developed new approaches to environmentally sound energy production in rural areas, improved conservation of energy in community settings, found ways to deal with waste economically and safely (whether by recycling or responsible consumer behaviour) and re-introduced effective indigenous methods that are economically feasible and environmentally sustainable. These training materials are presented in a format that will make them adaptable for use by a variety of interested parties, from policy makers to practitioners, and in a variety of settings, from classroom instruction to radio broadcasts.
