The Resilience Fund partnered with the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office of the Government of United Kingdom (FCDO) to explore the gendered impact of environmental crime and biodiversity loss on rural and indigenous women. The goal was to empower community resilience by supporting grassroots women-led initiatives in four forest ecosystems: the Arajuno forests in the Ecuadorian Amazon, the Sierra Tarahumara forests in Mexico, the Yabassi forests in Cameroon and the rainforests of northern Sumatra in Indonesia.

As a part of the programme, the Resilience Fund worked on the exploratory brief Impact of biodiversity loss and environmental crime on women from rural and indigenous communities, which analyses the gendered impact through case studies in these ecosystems. The recommendations in the brief were calibrated following localised in-person dialogues in each country with relevant stakeholders.

This Global Dialogue is a high-level discussion on identifying actions for implementing the recommendations. The participants include institutional stakeholders and leaders of the initiatives supported by the programme.
