This report represents the first-ever benchmarking of philanthropic funding in support of women and the environment. Its research shows that only 0.2% of all foundation funding focuses explicitly on women and the environment, signifying a missed opportunity for funders committed to ensuring a healthy environment and equitable world.
Produced by Global Greengrants Fund and Prospera International Network of Women’s Funds, this report is the first ever comprehensive mapping of funding in support of women and the environment. It includes case studies and success stories of women-led strategies, and opportunities and guidance from women’s rights activists worldwide.
This publication provides three key opportunities for foundations to support gender equality and environmental justice work more effectively.
Drawing on lessons from case studies and specific examples of funding for women’s climate change initiatives, this Guide orients grantmakers to the importance of funding at the intersection of climate justice and women’s rights and provides guidance on how funders can collaborate to direct timely and appropriate funding to women and their communities.
