Empowering women and girls is essential in the global drive to eliminate poverty, achieve social justice and stabilize the worlds population. Our Women & Population Team works together with the UN and other partners to promote gender equality and empower women and girls, with particular focus on reproductive and sexual health and rights.
We believe in the power of individuals, the private sector, local actors, governments and others to support the United Nations leadership in conserving the wonders of the natural world toward promoting sustainable development. Our program helps local communities develop sustainable livelihoods around some of the UNs more than 870 World Heritage sites—including such treasures as Ecuadors Galapagos Islands and Mexicos Sian Kaan Biosphere Reserve.
Energy is essential to the human experience. Energy powers transportation, provides heat, brings light and drives the machinery that fuels the global economy. Worldwide reliance on fossil fuels also incurs significant political, economic, environmental and development costs. Our Climate & Energy Team works with the UN to help transition the world toward a safe, cleaner, more equitable and climate-friendly energy future.
