Gender and Voluntary Carbon Markets

Following her active participation in the TSVCM (Task Force on Scaling Voluntary Carbon Markets) consultation group, Sue Phillips has been asked to join the TSVCM Expert Advisory Group to continue to provide inputs on gender equality and social inclusion. The TSVCM’s remit is to promote and oversee measures to increase the integrity of voluntary carbon markets as they go to scale over the next five to ten years. Our view is that integrity means ensuring markets avoid negative impacts on people  as a ‘rock bottom minimum’ and actively involve local communitiesin the design of interventions that deliver integrated climate and social benefits, with women’s participation and leadership being at the heart of such initiatives.
