Gender studies

Research on gender and green governance in other disciplines has focused mainly on womens near absence from forestry institutions. This interdisciplinary book turns that focus on its head to ask: what if women participated in these institutions-what difference would that make? Would womens inclusion in forest governance-undeniably important for equity-also affect decisions on forest use and outcomes for conservation and subsistence? How large a presence of women, and of which class, would make an impact? Answers to such questions could prove foundational for effective environmental governance, yet they have been subjected to little empirical investigation.
Traversing uncharted territory with rare analytical rigour, this lucidly written volume makes significant original contributions to current debates on gender and governance, forest conservation, clean energy policy, critical mass, community participation, and social inclusion.
