Most micro, small and medium enterprises, such as agri-based livelihoods, fisheries and handicrafts, are women-led and highly dependent on natural resources. Such resources are limited yet rapidly depleting and adversely affected by the radically changing climate. These challenges are recognized by the Philippine Commission on Women (PCW), through the GREAT Women Project, making environmental governance as one of the cross-cutting themes in the pursuit of women’s economic empowerment.
