Our goal is to contribute to reduced greenhouse gas emissions and improved ecosystem health for sustainable livelihoods in Eastern Africa.

Brief information on topic and research question: The importance of integration of gender in sustainable forest management and rural livelihoods has been proven through decades of research and experience. By contrast, consideration of gender in the emerging REDD+ has been inadequate, with energies concentrated in political, technical and funding issues. Gender advocates have been calling for an emphasis on the inclusion of women in climate change and REDD+ discussions, not on the basis of being victims of climate change, but as stewards and managers of forest resources.
