LINKAGES BETWEEN GENDER-BASED VIOLENCE (GBV) AND ENVIRONMENTAL ISSUES

Objective

To gather information on capacity, knowledge gaps and needs in relation to GBV and the environment. This will inform opportunities to address GBV and advance gender equality within environmental work and more broadly.

Gender-Based Violence (GBV)

GBV is “any harmful threat or act directed at an individual or group based on actual or perceived biological sex, gender identity and/or expression, sexual orientation, and/or lack of adherence to varying socially constructed norms around masculinity and femininity. It is rooted in structural gender inequalities, patriarchy, and power imbalances. GBV is typically characterized by the use or threat of physical, psychological, sexual, economic, legal, political, social and other forms of control and/or abuse. GBV impacts individuals across the life course and has direct and indirect costs to families, communities, economies, global public health, and development”. (United States Strategy to Prevent and Respond to Gender-Based Violence Globally (USAID), 2016).

We invite responses to this survey from any actors who address gender and/or environmental issues in the context of their programmes or initiatives. It is anticipated that the survey will take 15-20 minutes to complete. Your time and collaboration are greatly appreciated!
