Filling the gaps in gender and agroforestry

New release: A special issue of the International Forestry Review on Gender in Agroforestry, in collaboration with the CGIAR Research Program on Forests, Trees and Agroforestry (FTA).

There is a crucial need to improve the collective knowledge on gender and agroforestry. A lack of understanding of local contexts, cultural patterns and issues often contribute to widening the gap on how to deal with communities, and moreso the women in these communities. This special issue contains a collection of papers that contribute to developing a better understanding of this topic.
