Non-timber forest products, gender, and households in Nicaragua: A commodity chain analysis
MetadataShow full item record
This thesis examines the commodity chains of coco baskets and straw brooms as non-timber forest products in Nicaragua. While the research recognizes that non-timber forest products have been promoted as a means for sustainable development for natural resource management and gendered income for many years, Shillington points out that little is known about the specific divisions of labor across genders and the use of non-timber forest products in Nicaragua. In studying these gendered divisions of labor, Shillington uses a commodity chain analysis to track both the development of the product through the market chain, but also the impacts production and income generated from coco baskets and straw brooms has on the livelihoods of individuals.
