Publication date:
Type of publication:

This discussion guide aims to help trainers and grassroots facilitators learn more about the gender aspect of social equity in terms of forest-based climate change initiatives, including REDD+.

The questions in the guide are designed to help facilitate discussions concerning forest management practices and forest governance in the local and institutional contexts. The document accompanies a training video which emphasises the importance of gender equity in all levels of decision-making, process design and practice for forest-based climate change mitigation.

Shot in Vientiane in Lao PDR and the Baan Thung Yao community forest in Thailand, the video captures grassroots communities’ institutional knowledge of and experience with gender equity as it relates to forest governance as well as its integration into the forest management practices.
