Breaking Ground: A Facilitator's Manual to Community Dialogues on Gender and Land Restoration

Export citation

Land restoration initiatives can have varying impacts on men and women due to differences in their roles, responsibilities, and access to resources. Ignoring gender in the design and implementation of restoration activities can exacerbate existing gender inequalities and undermine the success of restoration efforts. Community Dialogues are a powerful tool to facilitate open and constructive discussions about gender perceptions, roles, constraints, and opportunities and how they impact people’s lives and ability to engage and benefit from land restoration.
