A leader of the gender mainstreaming project at UNEP, WEDO recommends the following outcomes to carry out the Gender Plan of Action (PoA) at UNEP.

Gender equality between women and men has a cumulative effect of improved environmental management and protection and poverty alleviation for communities. Women play a leading role in caring for their families and communities, in sharing their intellectual and social capital, and in protecting and managing natural resources. However, the environmental sector is among those in which gender mainstreaming has taken place in a fragmented, superficial and inconsistent manner.
