CALL: Papers on Forestry and Gender
Source: Mailist - July 19, 2010
Call for papers- Arborvitae - November 2010 special issue on forestry and
Arborvitae is the official newsletter of the IUCN Forest Conservation
Programme (FCP). The mission of FCP is to influence, encourage and assist
societies throughout the world to conserve biological diversity in forests
and tree-dominated landscapes and ensure that the use of forest resources
is equitable and ecologically sustainable. The newsletter Arborvitae
follows this mission, and covers the most important issues currently
affecting how forest resources are used and governed. You can view previous
issues at www.iucn.org/forest/av
The November 2010 issue of Arbovitae (published by IUCN) will focus on
forestry and gender issues. The objective of this publication will be to
provide information that will improve forestry practices through gender
For this issue we request articles from researchers, development
policymakers, practitioners, and activists from both, the forestry and the
gender studies sector. We are interested in articles that focus on:
* How do men and women contribute differently to the forestry sector?
* Why gender mainstreaming is needed in the forestry sector? And which
particular areas in the forestry sector could benefit from this gender
* What international/national initiatives or efforts are being carried
out to ensure that gender issues are integrated into forestry agendas?
* What lessons have we learn from case studies where gender has been
mainstreamed into forestry projects?
* What insights do we now have on the effect that gender mainstreaming
might have on mitigation initiatives related to climate change
* What governance issues should be addressed within the forestry sector
in order to warranty equality between men and women?
If you are interested in writing an article for this issue based on these
topics, or have another idea that might relate to these topics, please send
an abstract outlining your proposed idea to lorena.aguilar at iucn.org as soon
as possible, and before the commissioning deadline: 1 of September, 2010.
The size of the article should be of 500 words.
Commissioned articles will need to be completed for a deadline of 1
Please feel free to get in touch if you have any questions.
