ENST 350 - Gender and Sustainability
The course will present an overview of gender and development policies worldwide, including the introduction to gender analysis as the central aspect to understanding patterns of land use and conservation strategies, both individual and collective and how male and female farmers contribute differently to conservation and agricultural production efforts. Students will be presented with real case studies from Africa, Asia and Latin America, documenting gender gaps in the access to a large range of agricultural resources, including extension services, land and farm labor, forest, livestock, and other assets. Current international trends and research streams on gender and agriculture and natural resource management (NRM) will be discussed and analyzed with the aim to influence policy to reach lasting change.
An independent module on action research (AR) theory and methodologies will be part of the course, in order to provide students with some qualitative research skills and tools to conduct first hand research on a variety of topics that include gender, livelihoods strategies, and resources allocation in relation to development challenges in various world regions.
