On 8 May, the Ministry of Environment and Forestry (MoEF) issued a guideline for the implementation of gender mainstreaming through a minister’s decree (P. 31/MENLHK/SETJEN/SET.1/5/2017). The new guideline aims to strengthen the implementation of gender mainstreaming and will be used as a reference for the staff of MoEF. The new guideline strengthens efficiency and effectiveness in programme implementation by incorporating gender equality and gender equity into MoEF programmes and activities.
FORCLIME provided continuous support during the preparation process up to its enactment as a ministry’s decree. Furthermore, FORCLIME will support the MoEF Working Group Gender Mainstreaming to disseminate the regulation at national and sub-national levels.
