Making Ecopreneurs: Developing Sustainable Entrepreneurship
Green industry aims at mainstreaming environmental, climate and social considerations into the operations of enterprises. The greening of existing and the creation of new green industries has great potential to minimize harmful impact of climate change, environmental degradation and natural disasters on women’s livelihoods and food security. This may be considered as entry points to achieve inclusive and sustainable industrial development. The campaign highlights that women are important agents of change and play an active and substantial role in the management and conservation of natural resources, hence inclusion of both women and men could propel green industry and lead to better development outcomes.
The advocacy campaign on “Women in Green Industry” emphasizes the fact that enabling conducive policy environment coupled with deliberate action by government, the private sector, and development practitioners among others, are necessary to utilize the full potential of women’s participation in green growth.
Violence against women and girls have many faces. Verbal abuse is one form of violence that might not always be visible to others, but can deeply affect a person’s physical and emotional well-being.
Stop Verbal Abuse!
