SwedBio’s work is guided by a Gender and Development (GAD) perspective, recognising the need for deeper understanding of the different roles of poor rural women and men as managers of ecosystems.
SwedBio’s most important source of work related to gender and resilient social-ecological systems comes from our partners. Many of them have a long and rich experience in working with gender and biodiversity issues, in the field, in international negotiations, and also through conducting studies on the issue.
Sida’s Gender Tool Box provides knowledge, tools and inspiration on how to operationalize gender equality in Swedish development cooperation. A solid knowledge and method base is more important than ever due to an increased focus on gender equality in development cooperation, in Sweden and globally.
The Gender Tool Box highlights areas where we see a need for thematic method support and guidance. It is not only useful for Sida staff but also for our partners and other stakeholders. The Gender Tool Box includes three different kinds of materials: Tools, Briefs and Thematic Overviews. The development context is constantly changing, and new priorities arise. Look out for new briefs, tools and thematic overviews as we update the Gender Tool Box.
