Environment and Development

11:374:301


Description

Recent work in anthropology, sociology, geography and other disciplines has taken a more critical perspective on the issues of culture, power, rights and resources involved in the design, implementation and consequences of development and environmental interventions. Moreover, many scholars now realize that neither development nor the environment can be studied in isolation from one another: development interventions have environmental implications, and environmental interventions have repercussions for peoples' livelihoods and futures. Surprisingly, however, despite the long history of attention to gender and development and more recent focus on gender and the environment, there have been few attempts to bring the three issues "gender, development and the environment" into a single critical frame for theory, policy and practice. Yet gender, which we will define as the relations of power between and among men and women, is often a critical factor in shaping the ideas, imaginations, experiences, practices and pursuits of people engaged in development and environment initiatives, whether policymakers, practitioners, scholars, activists, or participants.
