Impact of social forestry activities on socio-economic conditions of rural women
Author(s): Saba Aziz Fatima and Neelma Kunwar
Rural women in Asia often play an important role in the collection of fuel wood, fodder and water. They are the primary users of forest products, which are not only used for domestic consumption but also for commercial purpose to obtain additional family income. Usually women make different use of forest products than men and therefore their priorities can conflict. The difference in priorities between men and women justifies the need for specifically involving women in social forestry projects, not only for reasons of equity, but also because of their role in the management of fuel wood resources (although less frequently recognized) and their role in income generating activities.
