Book

Rainforest Relations: Gender and Resource Use Among the Mende of Gola, Sierra Leone

Published on 1 January 1994

This book brings forest dwellers’ own differentiated perspectives to current rainforest debates.

After reviewing changing conservation agendas, and gender and environment approaches, it draws on detailed fieldwork to examine the importance of forest resources to local economy and society, and how dynamic gender relations condition women’s and men’s different environmental relations. It shows that neither an understanding of forest use and change, nor adequate conservation policies, can be achieved without a concern for gender.
