Gender in Agroforestry- Special issue (International Forestry Review 17 (Supplement 4))

This collection of papers began with our recognition of the vital need to improve our collective record on gender and agroforestry. We have seen mistakes committed in dealing with communities, particularly women in communities, repeatedly and usually due to simple ignorance of local contexts, cultural patterns and issues. Building on this concern, Catacutan coordinated discussions and presentations at a Gender Session at the 3rd World Congress on Agroforestry (WCA) in New Delhi, Feb 10-14, 2014. These seeds have evolved since then, as we have identified additional papers that contribute valuably to our growing understanding of gender and Agroforestry.
