Blog Post Women Bring New Perspectives to Wildlife Law Enforcement in Thailand by Gateway Web Editor — last modified Mar 19, 2019 04:16 PM
The international illicit trade in endangered wildlife is driving many species to extinction. Animals such as pangolins, rhinos, elephants and tigers are disappearing at alarming rates. Behind this are sophisticated criminal networks that mostly operate with impunity. While law enforcement agencies are plagued with many issues ranging from weak capacity to limited funding, an often-overlooked shortcoming includes an acute gender imbalance which sees very few women on the frontlines of enforcement. There is increasing recognition globally that involving more women is an important factor in effective law enforcement. Some good examples are emerging, such as in Thailand.
File Advancing Gender in the Environment: Gender in Fisheries—A Sea of Opportunities by Gateway Web Editor — last modified May 01, 2019 12:57 PM
Produced by USAID’s Office of Gender Equality and Women’s Empowerment (GenDev), USAID’s Office of Forestry and Biodiversity (FAB), and the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN), the guide provides an overview of the unique roles and contributions women make in the wild-caught fisheries sector. The guide also explains how persistent gender inequalities limit women’s economic empowerment, and increased risks of gender-based violence negatively impact the potential of women to thrive and contribute towards strong economies. Gender in Fisheries – A Sea of Opportunities summarizes research on the intersection of gender and wild-caught fisheries, exploring the ways in which fisheries offer important entry points to enhance gender equality and women’s economic empowerment while also contributing to more effective interventions and more sustainable outcomes. This guide will be an important resource, particularly for USAID missions and implementing partners working in sustainable fisheries management. Development practitioners can use the guide to access the latest evidence on gender empowerment and sustainable fisheries management; find tools and resources to conduct gender analyses; design strategic interventions to strengthen program design and implementation through the development of comprehensive gender action plans; and learn more about how to develop results chains to help programs define goals and refine assumptions.

USAID's approaches include promoting co-management approaches; tackling environmental crime and wildlife trafficking; strengthening the legal and judicial sectors; strengthening land and marine tenure systems; employing policy economy analysis; and enhancing the capacity of civil society to hold governments accountable. These examples illustrate how biodiversity conservation and DRG integration can help create the conditions needed for stable and sustainable development.
