Gender Mainstreaming Learning System (SRAGEN) for the Environment and Forestry Sector

To support sustainable gender mainstreaming in national development goals, the Ministry of Environment and Forestry (MoEF) is working with stakeholders to continue to step up efforts and implement strategies for incorporating gender mainstreaming into the forestry and environment sectors.

This includes providing gender mainstreaming (PUG) training and information for policymakers. The objective is to integrate gender components into the development agenda and government institutions’ capacity-building activities. This is in line with the Government of Indonesia’s commitment to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), particularly Goal 5 on gender equality. Implementation of gender mainstreaming will contribute to reducing gaps in access, participation, control, and development benefits between women and men.

To make information more readily available, MoEF launched the Gender Mainstreaming Learning System (SRAGEN) at the end of March 2021. SRAGEN is a digital platform consisting of various policy documents, learning material, activities and agendas to support gender mainstreaming. Information is disseminated through MoEF’s Gender Mainstreaming website, http://pug.menlhk.go.id/, and its social media channels, such as YouTube (insert link: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCAbI7LKONGixYlSveodH6aA), Instagram and Twitter (@gender_klhk). This ensures that both internal and external stakeholders of MoEF can easily access gender-related information.

MoEF’s development partners are supporting its goal to integrate gender mainstreaming components into policies, planning, programme implementation, monitoring and evaluation. Its partners include the Forests and Climate Change Programme (FORCLIME) and Climate Smart Land Use in ASEAN (CSLU) project – which are funded by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development and implemented by the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH – as well as various other institutions such as the Multistakeholder Forestry Programme Phase 4 (MFP4).
