New collection reveals current landscape of gender research

The gender lens is increasingly recognized as vital to modern research—particularly forestry—as more scientific work incorporates a gender approach.

Now, the Center for International Forestry Research (CIFOR) has released a new collection highlighting the organization’s gender research since 2013.

From governance and dry forests to value chains and polygynous marriages (those between one man and two or more women), the field’s diversity, urgency, and breadth are vividly illustrated.  The booklet includes 26 scientific publications in total, drawing upon work from Africa, Asia and Latin America—as well as global comparative studies with an international focus.
