Gendered Voices Newsletter- Environment Special 2021
Jun 7, 2021
UNDP Mauritius Gendered Voices Newsletter - Environment Special - draws on women's experiences in the environment sector. From the women impacted by the MV Wakashio oil spill on the southeastern coast of Mauritius to the women working as engineers in the Renewable Energy sector, as biologists in environmental NGOs engaged in protecting biodiversity, or working in the informal sector in Rodrigues, our informants share their challenges and achievements in the face of various gendered barriers encountered at work or in other aspects of their professional life. Through these editions, we discover the increasingly important role that Mauritian women play in promoting sustainable development and environmental protection in the Republic of Mauritius.
