The aim of the Green Livelihoods Alliance, which is now in its second five-year phase, is “to ensure that tropical forests and forest landscapes are sustainably and inclusively governed to mitigate and adapt to climate change, human rights and safeguard local livelihoods.”
The program operates in 12 countries around the world and internationally with social movements, civil society organizations and Indigenous Peoples and Local Communities to achieve two main goals: increase their participation in forest governance and land rights policy and strengthen advocacy to hold governments and industries accountable for deforestation and human rights violations.
Around the world, Indigenous and rural communities play central roles in forest governance. However, deforestation and forest degradation increasingly affect the livelihoods and rights of community members, creating and exacerbating inequalities and structural barriers. Hence inclusion and gender perspectives and feminist analysis are essential to the work of forest conservation, promoting the participation and decision-making power of all groups, particularly underrepresented groups. GFC, as a strategic partner of WECF, is providing expertise to support the integration of gender equality into the program in meaningful ways that ensure the success of the Green Livelihoods Alliance’s mission.
GFC is pleased to collaborate with WECF in this alliance to be able to contribute to inclusion, gender equality and feminist approaches in the GLA program and to support transformative change in forest governance.
More information on the partnership program can be found on the websites of WECF and Green Livelihoods Alliance.
