UN Women is conducting this survey on ‘Promoting Women’s Economic Empowerment in a Green Economy’ in preparation for the United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development, to be held in Rio de Janeiro in June 2012. Deadline for contributions: August 1, 2011.

Through this survey, UN Women aims to: (i) compile experiences, lessons learned, pilots, promising and innovative initiatives on women’s economic empowerment and participation in a green economy; and (ii) collect established and proven methodologies and approaches with substantial and documented impact on women’s economicempowerment in a green economy. The most unique experiences and initiativeswill be published in a report that will be launched in Rio in June 2012. It is expected that this report will generate ideas for development planners and practitioners in governments, United Nations system, civil society and the private sector on concrete initiatives that can be brought to scale and replicated to accelerate women’s economic empowerment in the green economy.
