The term “Women are the Future” is more pronounced nowadays than ever before. Promoting women’s full participation in state-building is a matter of gender equality and human rights. It is also critical for the achievement of sustainable development, as is being shown by a growing body of evidence and international opinion through Goal number 5 of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) which is “Achieving gender equality and empowering all women and girls.” The UN Women FGE project “Promoting Hima Women Empowerment for Conservation and Livelihood” came as the right opportunity for SPNL to focus on women empowerment and gender equality as an integral part of SPNL’s strategy. The project was implemented in four Hima sites aiming to empower women both socially and economically in order to improve their livelihoods through the Hima approach. In addition, SPNL’s recent partnership with the private sector (BioLand) will further strengthen the economic empowerment component by improving marketing techniques and communication strategies which are key aspects to ensure future sustainability.
