Rojas, M. H.
MetadataShow full item record
This guide uses case studies from the Parks in Peril program, a conservation initiative in Latin America and the Caribbean, to offer six steps to analyze and integrate gender into community-based conservation initiatives. It is intended to be used as a training tool for personnel working in the field, organizations and institutions, or policy. Each step provides opportunities to develop a conceptual understanding of a specific topic followed by a hands-on exercise, ultimately resulting in some form of tangible result. The topics range from developing an understanding of gender roles to understanding what kind of barriers women face in terms of participation.
