The Daily News Egypt - - News -

Dur­ing the UN Con­fer­ence of the Par­ties of Bi­o­log­i­cal Di­ver­sity COP14, which is be­ing held in Sharm El-Sheikh from 17 to 29 Novem­ber, the Indige­nous Women’s Bio­di­ver­sity Net­work (IWBN) or­gan­ised a photo gallery to com­mem­o­rate women’s role in con­serv­ing bio­di­ver­sity in the past 20 years.

The gallery aims to present the re­la­tion­ship and con­nec­tiv­ity be­tween cul­ture, na­ture, and con­serv­ing bi­o­log­i­cal di­ver­sity. It also dis­plays ex­am­ples of women’s par­tic­i­pa­tion in sup­port­ing lo­cal com­mu­ni­ties through sus­tain­able man­age­ment, co­op­er­at­ing with them for con­serv­ing nat­u­ral re­sources, and achiev­ing the sus­tain­able de­vel­op­ment goals.

The gallery in­cluded a num­ber of pho­to­graphs that re­flect women’s ex­pe­ri­ences and their tra­di­tional knowl­edge in con­serv­ing bi­o­log­i­cal di­ver­sity in a num­ber of coun­tries in­clud­ing Egypt, Rus­sia, China, Su­dan, In­dia, and Latin Amer­ica.
