dc.description.abstract Vulnerability to climate change is shaped by gender relations, with poor, rural women the most vulnerable of the most vulnerable poor. Recognizing that involvement in a process is not equivalent to having a voice or ability to influence outcomes, strategies to foster the effective participation women are essential to ensure that gender dimensions are addressed in issues of climate change, forest access, forest management and distribution of carbon benefits. Men and women relate to and use the forest differently and so may differently experience the effects of climate change policies, such as REDD+ (Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation). en
