About this item
There is currently much interest in mainstreaming gender in natural resource management, including forestry. This Reader provides a collection of key major articles published on gender and forests over the last thirty years. Including an editorial introduction and overview, it provides an accessible collection of excellent forestry-relevant social science, framed within an overarching analytical framework and demonstrating the leading debates in the field.
The book should be of great value to both biophysical science and social science students and professionals in training. It focuses on people and forest interactions, providing a range of studies from both developed and developing countries. It includes theoretical analyses, methodological pieces, case studies, and cross-country comparisons, and forms a companion volume to "Gender and Forests: Climate Change, Tenure, Value Chains and Emerging Issues" (Colfer et al., 2016).
