International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) & Women’s Environment and Development Organization (WEDO)

The primary objective of IUCN’s publication entitled “Forest and Gender” is to emphasize the importance of integrating gender equality principles in forest conservation and sustainability. This publication brings together case studies drawn from around the world, demonstrating the benefits of enhancing women’s participation in forest management and restoration. The book also covers current issues, progress and future challenges of gender equity or resource management, for the inclusion of women in forest development programs and securing women’s property rights at international and global levels.
