Women's Environment & Development Organization (WeDo)


Mission is to ensure that women’s rights; social, economic and environmental justice; and sustainable development principles-as well as the linkages between them-are at the heart of global and national policies, programs and practices.

WEDO maintains that diversity in leadership drives better policy; that women, as a result of socially constructed gender roles, are often more directly or severely impacted by negative environmental change while also having a unique perspective for creative and appropriate solutions; and that addressing complex environmental problems must incorporate women’s human rights to avoid increasing gender equality and violence against women and to secure sustainable development for future generations.
