OUR STORY AND IMPACT
For 25 years, WEDO has been a global advocate for women and the environment, working as one of the very few civil society organizations in the world with the knowledge and expertise to navigate the complex environmental-focused UN-processes to ensure that a gendered perspective is prioritized by member states and mandated into international agreements.
Through networks, trainings, workshops, demonstrations, knowledge production, data collection and advocacy work created through our own efforts and often with the support of allies and partners, we believe that every initiative, project, and campaign undertaken is driven by the ultimate goal of creating a more just and sustainable world, for all.
