About Us

Women's Environment and Development Organization (WEDO) is a global women’s advocacy organization for a just world that promotes and protects human rights, gender equality, and the integrity of the environment.

WEDO works towards two interlinked goals:

1) Women are empowered to claim their rights as decision-makers, advocates and leaders, especially on issues related to environment and sustainable development

2) Sustainable development policies, plans and practices are gender-responsive, environmentally and socially just, and effectively implemented.

To do this work, WEDO:

  • Delivers training and capacity building to women leaders on environment and climate change issues;
  • Supports grassroots women leaders at the frontlines of climate impacts to speak truth to power in global policy spaces;
  • Showcases and amplifies just alternatives to the current fossil fuel economy;
  • Builds power within diverse and fierce transnational feminist & environmental justice movement(s).
