About Us

The Women’s Initiative for Sustainable Environment’s approach to the issue of environmental sustainability is an integrated one, as WISE engages in environmental projects and programs in the areas of environmental governance and awareness creation, water sanitation and hygiene, municipal waste management, tree planting, women’s rights and empowerment, and tourism. We have benefited from both long term and short term partnerships with both local and international organizations by way of participation in capacity building programs, project planning, development and implementation, and technical and funding support.

Women’s Rights

Women’s restricted access to natural resources ranks high amongst factors that engender gender disparities and confine women to impoverishment and deprivation. At the 2000 United Nations Millennium Summit, 191 governments reaffirmed their commitment to women’s empowerment and adopted the Millennium Declaration, agreeing to promote gender equality and the empowerment of women as effective ways to combat poverty, hunger, and disease, and to stimulate development that is truly sustainable

Environmental Awareness

Our global and immediate environment is increasingly undergoing rapid changes which are very detrimental to the well being of human populations and the entire ecosystem. WISE believes that there is need to improve the relationships between humans and their environment, including the global aspects of the environment through sound environmental education

Tourism Promotion

In recent years, the Tourism industry has gained more prominence and more countries are beginning to see and realize its significant economic benefit. Nigeria is no exception to this fact. According to the Nigerian Tourism Agency, “Nigeria is a fascinating country where the complimentary diversities of the people, their custom and vitality are enough to attract and satisfy the tourist in search of colour and excitement. However, WISE is of the view that the declining quality of the environment especially in a country like Nigeria has in no small way limited and affected Tourism boost
