Februar 2006 - gebunden - 256 Seiten
This volume presents encounters with rural men and women in South Asian and Southeast Asian countries working for local and national governments and for non-governmental organizations.
Six case studies are offered to highlight the diversity of efforts to integrate social and gender analysis into natural resource management research. These cases present examples of challenges and opportunities, as well as successes and disappointments encountered while integrating social and gender analysis. They also demonstrate the variety of methods used and adapted in diverse contexts, reflect on what has been done and is being done in terms of capacity development and, most importantly, how this is being done and the factors that affect the process.

The perspective from which it is presented makes it very interesting. The authors have taken much care to provide the readers with an adequate description of the study context where the learning projects are implemented, gender-related information including equity, access to land and other resources, and information as well as outcome of the action-oriented projects where different stakeholders are involved in various ways…this book, beyond doubt provides many valuable insights.
