File Advancing Gender in the Environment: Gender in Fisheries—A Sea of Opportunities by Gateway Web Editor — last modified May 01, 2019 12:57 PM
Produced by USAID’s Office of Gender Equality and Women’s Empowerment (GenDev), USAID’s Office of Forestry and Biodiversity (FAB), and the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN), the guide provides an overview of the unique roles and contributions women make in the wild-caught fisheries sector. The guide also explains how persistent gender inequalities limit women’s economic empowerment, and increased risks of gender-based violence negatively impact the potential of women to thrive and contribute towards strong economies. Gender in Fisheries – A Sea of Opportunities summarizes research on the intersection of gender and wild-caught fisheries, exploring the ways in which fisheries offer important entry points to enhance gender equality and women’s economic empowerment while also contributing to more effective interventions and more sustainable outcomes. This guide will be an important resource, particularly for USAID missions and implementing partners working in sustainable fisheries management. Development practitioners can use the guide to access the latest evidence on gender empowerment and sustainable fisheries management; find tools and resources to conduct gender analyses; design strategic interventions to strengthen program design and implementation through the development of comprehensive gender action plans; and learn more about how to develop results chains to help programs define goals and refine assumptions.
File Evidence Summary: Ecosystem-based Adaptation and Extreme Events by FRAME Administrator — last modified May 17, 2019 02:43 PM
This evidence summary highlights specific ecosystem-based adaptation (EbA) approaches that can help communities adapt to extreme weather and other climate events such as floods, storm surges, landslides, fires, droughts and heat waves. It also explains the role of EbA in urban and rural resilience to extreme events, differences between EbA and ecosystem-based approaches to disaster risk reduction and how EbA compares with and complements built infrastructure.
File Food Security Reference Sheet by BRIDGE — last modified Sep 11, 2019 05:35 PM
Ecosystems provide goods and services that support food production—including provision of wild foods and water, pest control and pollination—and biodiversity programming can have significant positive impacts on food security. Similarly, agriculture programming can sustainably increase productivity and incomes while minimizing impacts on the environment, yielding benefits for both food security and biodiversity.
USAID Impact Newsletter July 2015 by Portal Web Editor — last modified Jul 29, 2015 02:04 AM
Imagine A World Without Extreme Poverty. It is a world where every child gets the nutrients they need to thrive. It is a world where every girl has access to a quality education; and where all citizens have a voice and a vote. A world without extreme poverty is a world where doctors don't have to save lives in the dark and students don't have close their books at sunset. It is a world where families are freed from hunger, protected from disease and prepared when disaster strikes.

File Ecotourism with an Emphasis on Birding Opportunities In the Gourma Region by Adam Welti — last modified Jan 10, 2013 05:16 PM
A team comprised of technical experts from USFS and AMCFE worked in‐country with counterparts and important stakeholders including Office Malien du Tourisme et de l’Hôtellerie (OMATHO), Projet de Conservation et de Valorisation de la Biodiversité du Gourma et des Eléphants (PCVBG‐E), other local, regional, and national government representatives, local and international NGO’s, community associations and local community leaders, local teachers, and travel agencies from March 1 ‐10, 2010. The team examined the feasibility of bird‐viewing tourism in the area, and gained insight from local populations and government. During the mission, the USFS team members’ travel was restricted by the US Embassy due to security concerns. In some cases, the information presented in this report was gleaned from informational interviews conducted outside of the Gourma of key stakeholders who live/work in the Gourma Region; in some cases, the information presented here‐in represents the findings of the AMCFE team member who traveled alone to the Gourma Region (Douentza, Hombori, Dimamou, Gossi, Inadiatfane, Banzena, Boni and Mondoro .)

File Training Guide: Gender and Climate Change Research in Agriculture and Food Security For Rural Development by Portal Web Editor — last modified Jan 20, 2014 02:47 AM
Concurrently, it is internationally recognized that addressing gender issues in agriculture reduces hunger and poverty. In fact, it is estimated that more than 100 million people could be lifted out of poverty if women had the same access to and control of resources as men (FAO, 2011a). Although they are important food producers and providers, women presently have limited access to and control of resources. However, to date, these ideas – that climate change and gender issues are integral parts of agricultural development – have not been implemented in an effective way. This guide seeks to fill that gap by supporting work to investigate the gender dimensions of responding to climate change in the agriculture and food security sectors. The final goals are to improve food production, livelihood security and gender equality in the context of the changing climate.
