    Gender, rural livelihoods and forestry 2017
    Also available in:

    The main purposes of this research are to identify and analyse the role of women and men in the forestry sector in Kosovo, and women’s and men’s ownership and use of forests. The report also aims to analyse the gender issues within the institutional policy and legal framework that governs forest management, in order to provide recommendations on how to mainstream gender in forest policies in Kosovo more effectively. The research forms part of a project entitled, “Support to Implementation of the Forest Policy and Strategy in Kosovo” (GCP/KOS/005/FIN) funded by Finland, which aims to increase the forestry sector’s contribution to the national economy through the sustainable use of forest resources, taking into account multipurpose forestry, and the economic, social and environmental benefits of forests, as well as the sector’s contribution to climate change mitigation. The study demonstrates women’s limited access to decision-making and information compared with men, and women’s pen ding property rights. Furthermore, the high unemployment rate is the main obstacle identified by rural community members, especially women. The report also demonstrates the interests of rural women in improving their skills in the collection, processing and marketing of non-wood forest products (NWFPs). Consequently, the report shows the importance of improving women’s access to information, capacity development and decision-making. It concludes by emphasizing that NWFPs have strong potential fo r reducing food insecurity and poverty in the regions of the study, particularly when both women and men are effectively supported.

    Gender assessment in plantation forestry in Uganda 2022

    Women play a vital role in forestry, but their contributions are not fully realized due to existing gender inequalities. The policy environment for addressing gender equality in Uganda has improved in recent decades, but women continue to be disadvantaged by insecure property rights and by limited access to forests, trees and land resources. Women also suffer from discrimination and bias in the provision of services, including credit and technology, and are often excluded from decision-making at household, community and national levels. Gender mainstreaming and women empowerment were therefore core aspects of the Sawlog Production Grant Scheme Phase III (SPGS III). FAO, on behalf of the Government of Uganda, is implementing the SPGS III project. The project aims at increasing the incomes of the rural population through commercial tree planting by small, medium, and large-scale private sector actors and the local communities, while at the same time helping to mitigate climate change effects through intensive afforestation. Empowering women in forestry can create significant development opportunities and generate important additional benefits for their households and communities. Therefore, FAO conducted a study to assess status of gender equality and women empowerment in plantation forestry in Uganda and make recommendations on how to better integrate gender equality in commercial forestry.
