Mrinalini Rai on the Convention on Biodiversity and Gender Rights
The Convention on Biodiversity (CBD) acts as an international legal framework to uphold nations’ commitments to biodiversity. Every two years, the governing body, referred to as the Conference of the Parties (COP), meets to assess progress in the implementation of the Convention, provide policy guidance, adopt programs, and review the achievement of the CBD's objectives. In this podcast, we speak to Mrinalini Rai (Rai) about gender and women's rights at the CBD. Mrinalini Rai is Director of Women4Biodiversity.
