Initiatives for More Gender Equality in Forestry
The Task Force has been looking into gender equality initiatives, driven by policy initiatives and processes at different levels, in countries of the Global North and South. These diverse case studies do not only shed light on context-specific approaches and their effectiveness, but also help to better understand how research and academic education have contributed to motivate, initiate and carry out different policy processes regarding gender mainstreaming in a forestry context. More case studies will follow soon!
