Women environmental defenders are disproportionately affected by gender-based violence, which is used to drive them away from the movements they lead and discourage them from activism. To address this, the Global Initiative Against Transnational Organized Crime (GI-TOC), through its Resilience Fund, launched today a new fellowship aimed at empowering women leaders to enhance community resilience to environmental crime.

The initiative, titled ‘Strengthening women’s resilience to organized environmental crime’, and produced in partnership with the UK’s Foreign, Commonwealth, and Development Office (FCDO), seeks to address the critical intersection of gender and environmental crime by championing the voices of women working to protect the environment, thus ensuring a more inclusive approach that promotes gender equality.

Interested candidates should submit their applications online.

Deadline: 14 June 2024

This project is funded with UK aid from the UK government.
