WWF has recognised the vital role women play in the conservation and sustainable use of biological diversity. But the thing is, most economic development has favoured men, not necessarily to the benefit of women. Women have little access to physical and capital resources, to decision-making and leadership positions, to training and formal education. This issue should be addressed if WWF wants its conservation goals to be achieved.
The “Sustainable Livelihoods and Coastal Resource Management in Berau and Solor Alor, Indonesia” project is under Danish Government Aid Agency (DANIDA). DANIDA has the vision of a development policy that places people – women as well as men – at the centre. The aim is to promote a society capable of enabling the human dignity and freedom of the individual, subject to accountability for their actions.
The development objective of the project is sustainable livelihoods through equitable access to and environmentally sound management of coastal and marine resources in Indonesia.
