Synergies between biodiversity and land degradation goals and reducing gender and intersectional inequalities cannot be presumed, they must be created and nurtured.

It explores the ways in which an intersectional approach has thus far been adopted and identifies areas that require further attention for meaningful equity in environmental degradation/restoration contexts.
