Achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls
At WRI we actively seek opportunities to draw on these insights in our work. WRI’s Gender and Social Equity Initiative works across WRI to ensure that gender and equity issues are incorporated into our research and analysis to ensure that we not only ‘do no harm,’ but that we advance gender equality. WRI research and stakeholder engagement identifies and advances enabling conditions for women’s meaningful participation in decision-making (SDG 5.5) and equitable access to resources (SDG 5.1, SDG 5.A, SDG 5.C). Our Land and Resource Rights Practice promotes women’s equal rights to govern, use and benefit from land and resources within indigenous and customary communities, including those governed by collective tenure systems.
