Gender in forest, agroforestry and tree value chains: Examining interventions and impacts

As the critical link between gender and forest- and tree-based livelihoods gains recognition, several recent interventions have focused on gender dynamics in value chains such as coffee, cocoa, shea, fuelwood, honey, gums and ecotourism. But independent impact analyses that qualitatively or quantitatively demonstrate changes in the position of specific groups of women and men are only just starting to emerge.

Speakers will share experiences with inclusion, upgrading, capacity building and empowerment strategies.
