Gender, tenure and community forests in Uganda and Nicaragua

In Uganda and Nicaragua, as in many countries, women are still shut out of forestry decisions at all levels - despite everyone agreeing that women's participation is important. How can we ensure that gender mainstreaming is 'process-oriented' rather than merely 'ticking boxes'? This presentation focuses on a project in Uganda and Nicaragua aimed at improving women's participation. CIFOR scientist Anne Larson gave this presentation on 20 June 2012 at a Rio+20 side event titled 'Linking policy, practice and research for gender-responsive change in forestry'. The side event aimed to promote discussion and the exchange of ideas on concrete ways to address gender inequalities at different governance levels in forestry research and practice, and the risks and opportunities associated with different strategies and choice of partners.
