State of Funding for Women’s Environmental Action
March 16, 2018 | Grantee Publications | Conservation & Sustainable Development, Population & Reproductive Health

A study by Global Greengrants Fund shows that women are at the forefront of environmental action locally and globally, and funders are providing more than $100 million each year to support the intersection of women and the environment. The report features a case study of MacArthur’s support to Blue Ventures’ integrated conservation and reproductive health work in southwest Madagascar. The MacArthur-supported report finds these types of investments are creating impact for those who fund the environment and human rights. However, a gap remains: less than 0.1% of foundation grants and 0.2% of foundation dollars are supporting the nexus of women and the environment, creating an opportunity for both large and small funders. The study was done in partnership with the Wallace Global Fund, Prospera International Network of Women’s Funds, and the Global Alliance for Green and Gender Action.
