The environment and climate change unit at UNDP Zambia would want to ensure that gender equality is mainstreamed in its project portfolio. Gender inequality remains a common feature of all our societies, yet the way in which individuals experience gender discrimination varies greatly. This is because inequality is caused by many factors other than gender alone notably economic status, race or ethnicity, religious affiliation, age, physical or mental disability, and sexuality. Situational factors such as systemic poverty, environmental degradation, or rural neglect can also lead to serious hardship and inequality.
