Abidah Setyowati, ‘Ensuring that Women Benefit from REDD+’, Unasylva, 239(63) 2012/1: 57-62.

As many countries are developing REDD+ policies that will likely transform the way in which forests are governed, this article considers gender disparity in the forest sector and the ways in which women could be excluded from the benefits of REDD+. It explores how women are critical to the success of REDD+ and describes those aspects most likely to affect women differentially. Finally, it recommends that REDD+ policies incorporate a gender perspective, and that women participate in their development.
