Gender-Based Violence

This self-paced online training will introduce gender and gender-based violence, how it relates to our conservation work and ways to respond appropriately.

Gender-based violence (GBV) refers to harmful threats or actions directed at an individual or group based on their gender. GBV can include physical, psychological, sexual, economic, legal, political and social harm, as well as other forms of harm, abuse and control. GBV can impact people of all gender identities, including some men.

Gender-based violence is rooted in inequality, and inequality is everywhere. For example, violence against women and girls is one of the most prevalent global human rights violations, affecting approximately 1 in 3 women. Conservation programs that do not consider existing gender inequality and fail to understand gender and social norms in an area can worsen conditions that cause harm—especially for women and girls.
