This presentation discusses a cross country study on gender in community forest management. Analyzing gender participation in Kenya, Uganda, Mexico and Bolivia, the research demonstrates that participation in community forestry user groups varies by geographic region. More specifically, the research shows how gender is related to access to forest resources and participation in forest governance.
