What difference does it make if women participate in forest governance institutions? Does it affect decisions on forest use, and outcomes for conservation and subsistence? How many women does it take, and from which class, to make a difference? Bina Agarwal will answer these questions and others based on her recent book Gender and Green Governance, based on significant field work undertaken in India and Nepal and hailed by reviewers as “a classic not just in environmental studies, but in studies of development, governance, public action and public service delivery more broadly”.
