Gender and biodiversity: how indigenous and local community women safeguard nature

The knowledge that indigenous women carry is rooted in a deep appreciation of the natural world. They possess an intricate understanding of various species, their nutritional value, medicinal properties, and ecological roles. This knowledge, passed down through generations, not only enriches their communities but has been crucial for science.

Despite this, indigenous women often remain marginalised and relegated to the status of beneficiaries rather than recognised as partners and agents of change.

As we look forward to COP16 and discussions surrounding the Global Biodiversity Framework, it becomes increasingly important to amplify their voices and integrate their perspectives into global dialogues on benefit-sharing and biodiversity conservation.
