FTA Focus on Gender December 2016



Dear colleagues,

Welcome to our ninth edition of the FTA Gender Integration Team Newsletter: Focus on Gender.
FTA scientists actively participated and contributed to events and discussions during the latest Conference of the Parties (COP22) to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) and the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD). This issue focuses on their thoughts and experiences on gender and climate change in the context of forests, trees and agroforestry.

Please feel free to share with us any gender and forest-related resources, tools or information you may have. Your comments and feedback are welcome and encouraged. To get in touch, please email Ana Maria Paez Valencia

Warm regards,
The FTA Gender Integration Team
