AGENT - Advancing Gender in the Environment

AGENT is a ten-year program launched by USAID in 2014 and implemented by the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN).  The purpose of the partnership is to increase the effectiveness of USAID’s environment programming through the robust integration of gender considerations, improving gender equality and women’s empowerment outcomes in a broad range of environmental sectors.  Recognizing women as agents of change, and the value of diverse knowledge, experiences and capacities of women and men alike, AGENT envisions a world that approaches environmental work at all levels with gender-responsive policy and action.  AGENT drives transformation toward a more sustainable and equitable future for all.
