Integrating Indigenous and Gender Aspects in Natural Resource Management - Guidelines for Practioners
The aim of the guidelines is to offer conceptual and practical tools for improving natural resource management activities and to open a dialogue among practitioners as to how gender and indigenous concerns can best become an integrated part of any natural resource management process anywhere in the world.
The First Part offers a number of case stories on the consequences of excluding and including indigenous and gender concerns in relation to natural resource management. Furthermore it presents arguments against and in favour of including indigenous and gender aspects in order to put the issues into perspective.
The Second Part presents suggestions and recommendations for including indigenous and gender concerns in natural resource management activities based on a project cycle approach.
The Third Part - the ANNEXES - provides short background information on the IGNARM network, including the working concepts. A number of other annexes provide additional useful information.
