Critical approaches to gender in mountain ecosystems

Omer Aijazi (Editor), Sejuti Basu (Editor)

Research output: Book/ReportCommissioned reportpeer-review


Women play a key role in nature conservation, yet they often lack the inputs, technologies, training and extension services, and various enablers and linkages that can enhance the effectiveness of their efforts. Evidence indicates that gender-inclusive and gender-sensitive conservation practices have far-reaching multiplier impacts. This report brings out gender-specific knowledge for ecosystem management in mountain regions. Insights are collated from India, Italy, Mexico, Nepal, and the Togo-Ghana Highlands. The chapters capture diverse approaches to nature stewardship examined through a gender lens at the regional, national and sub-national level.
