Faces de Eva. Estudos sobre a Mulher

Print version ISSN 0874-6885


BUCKINGHAM, Susan. On the 25th Anniversary of the Beijing Conference on Women Assessing progress in achieving meaningful gender - balance in environmental policy making and management. Faces de Eva. Estudos sobre a Mulher [online]. 2020, n.43, pp.121-175. ISSN 0874-6885.

This paper reviews the contribution of the Beijing Platform to achieve gender sensitive environmental policy, based on a number of examples covering a range of scales, regions and timings of their inclusion of gender: the EU; the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change; IOC-UNESCO’s Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development which launches in 2021; and municipalities in Europe responsible for implementing waste reduction initiatives. The broader context of gender mainstreaming provides a critical conceptual and analytical framework. It acknowledges some limited and isolated progress, but concludes that, overall, a lack of structural change leaves unequal gender relations broadly intact, while environmental conditions continue to deteriorate.

Keywords : climate change; gender mainstreaming; ocean science research; sustainable development; waste reduction.
