After reviewing over 1000 sources of information, 100 case study submissions, and having analysed survey responses and interviews, this study focuses on three major areas where gender-based violence (GBV) and environment linkages act as barriers to equitable, effective, rights-based conservation and sustainable development. 1) Access and control over natural resources. 2) Environmental pressures and threats. 3) environmental action to conserve, defend, and protect natural resources. The study presents findings on GBV-environment linkages towards supporting strengthened action across sustainable development and conservation sectors.
