Gender mainstreaming in natural resources management: why and how?

In the view of Both ENDS, the key to reduce and prevent poverty and achieve sustainable development is to empower poor and marginalized groups in order to regain and protect their access to and control over natural resources. Access to and control over natural resources is unequally distributed all over the world and strongly related to unbalanced power relationships. These include differentiated power relationships between men and women.

This paper is written for CSOs working in natural resources management in the South and North, who are interested to (further) address and integrate gender issues in their activities. It aims to provide CSOs with some insights and examples and methods to mainstream gender in their work, specifically in water and land use management activities.
