MFF and CEESP’s role in gender equity

Gender discrimination is one of the main causes of poverty, and a major obstacle to equitable and sustainable global human development.” (SIDA 2005) ‘Mangroves for the Future’ (MFF) is one of the largest partnership-based initiatives of the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) that promotes and attracts investments in coastal ecosystems that support sustainable development. MFF aims to guarantee equality of outcomes for women and men in the management of natural resources and promotion of sustainable livelihoods in coastal communities as one of its cross cutting themes. Since its inception in 2006, the MFF has undergone considerable change in its strategic implementation and now, in its third phase (2015-2018), it aims to focus on ‘generating commitment of the leadership/ management’ as well as ‘building the technical capacity of field level practitioners’ for gender integration. CEESP focuses on providing a platform for experts all over the world to connect with one another and explore, promote and provide insights into nature-based solutions to current social and economic problems. As stated in the mandate, the commission’s ideal is to create a world in which “equity is at the root of a dynamic harmony between peoples and nature, as well as among peoples.”
