Gender and nature risk management: A four pillar approach for financial institutions

With over half of the world’s total GDP (circa $58 trillion of economic value) being moderately or highly dependent on nature, the degradation of our natural capital represents an escalating threat to our ecosystems, and to the financial stability of nations and organizations.

Yet, the gender component in nature-risk management is often overlooked. In this article, you will discover a four-pillar structure mirroring the TNFD to incorporate gender-responsive strategies in nature-risk management.
