Synergies between biodiversity and land degradation goals and reducing gender and intersectional inequalities cannot be presumed, they must be created and nurtured. This study explores intersectionality as a critical concept and tool to address social inequalities in research and actions to reverse environmental degradation. 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.
