Current activities

A joint R&D project on "Networking as a method for progress on gender equality", was initiated in order to analyse  and compare the experiences (pros and cons) gained by different women's organizations/network in different contexts (countries).  A further objective is to develop a method for comparative studies of women's self – organizing, to be used for a broader analysis/evaluation involving more countries).  Based on the results (to be presented end of 2012), some recommendations may be expressed and addressed to the forestry sector in Europe and North America on how to best (practice) organize: what strategies and tactics seems to be most successful. During 2011 data from focus group discussions with networks in Norway, Sweden and Germany has been carried out. Organized by RG 6.08, WP 6.08.01 and 6.08.02.
