Anny Andaryati has been working to mainstream gender into green economy and resource management to increase gender and ecological justice. She believes that structural gender inequality needs to be addressed to assure gender equality and equity, the successful transition to a green economy and the achievement of sustainable development. In the absence of gender sensitive policies, green economy initiatives such as ecotourism may increase existing gender inequities and endanger overall sustainability.
Anny is a member of global women’s rights organisations which are working to achieve gender equality, sustainable development and human rights. These organisations provide a platform to exchange learning and as a reference for her work.
Anny is an avid traveller and diver, visiting remote places and staying in community run accommodation. She has seen the positive and negative gendered impacts of tourism on communities, their livelihood, and culture.
