Women make up half of the world’s population and are fundamental to the achievement of global environmental benefits and the Sustainable Development Goals. As primary caretakers of households and communities, women have highly specialized and valuable knowledge for the conservation and management of natural resources. At the same time, they are often the most impacted by environmental degradation and climate-related events. At its core, the Small Grants Programme believes that women are important agents of change and should be meaningfully involved in environmental programming.
Storytelling is part of the fabric that holds human societies together – stories connect us to our humanity, providing links to what has been, and a glimpse of what might be to come. Spanning all 25 years of UNDP’s partnership with the GEF, the stories in this anniversary publication represent a small sample of the thousands that could be told. These stories stand as evidence that our work to protect the health of the planet is bringing about real improvements in people’s lives and changes in the way governments, businesses and civil society think about the environment, develop policies and do their work. The storytellers include people from all walks of life, including subsistence farmers, civil society leaders, captains of industry, environmental practitioners, renowned academics and government ministers. The common thread that binds their stories together is the message of transformational impact that promises a brighter future.
