Arise – A women’s development magazine: Women and natural resource management

This issue of the Arise Magazine is themed “Women and Natural Resource Management.À Women clearly outdo men in terms of their involvement in use, management and conservation of natural resources, yet they face categorical exclusion and are denied equal sharing of access to, and benefits from natural resources. This is caused by a number of factors like un-equal power relations, and the patriarchal nature of our society that demeans and belittles women.

Consequently, in order to promote a participatory culture in the use, management and conservation of natural resources like land, livestock, agriculture, oil, fisheries and forests, this Issue recommends that policy makers, planners and development workers have a better understanding of the relative and often shifting roles of men and women in natural resource management, including division of labour, access to resources, decision-making and traditional knowledge and practices.

The magazine also includes sector- specific recommendations that delineate women’s roles in natural resource management.

These are some highlights of what’s contained in the issue: Undue Influence from a Rotten Institution: Corruption in Natural Resource Management; Will Ugandan Women Benefit from Oil? Lessons from
Ghana and Women and Men in Agriculture: Closing the Gender Gap.
