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.
Here are some papers from the collection:
Gender roles, responsibilities, and spaces: implications for agroforestry research and development in Africa
Gender roles, decision-making and challenges to agroforestry adoption in Northwest Vietnam
Can gender appreciation of trees enhance landscape multifunctionality? A case of smallholder farming systems on Mount Elgon
