We deliver actionable evidence and solutions to transform how land is used and how food is produced: conserving and restoring ecosystems, responding to the global climate, malnutrition, biodiversity and desertification crises. In short, improving people’s lives.

Linking research to action: gender and adaptive collaborative management

CIFOR scientists are drawing lessons from experiments using Adaptive Collaborative Management (ACM) techniques to increase women's participation in forestry in Cameroon, Uganda and Nicaragua. As a result, women have been granted land and encouraged to plant trees of their choosing, and have been empowered to take up decision-making positions. This presentation discusses the challenges and opportunities for using ACM to promote gender equity. CIFOR scientists Anne Marie Tiani and Peter Cronkleton 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.
