This book provides an insight into both biodiversity and gender. It recognises the vital role of women in the conservation and sustainable use of biological diversity, and affirms the need for the full participation of women at all levels of policy-making and implementation in the conservation of biological diversity. Analytic, integrative in approach, and clearly presented, this book is aimed at environmentalists, natural resource scientists, environmental practitioners and policy-makers.



Integrating Biodiversity into Sectoral and Cross-Sectoral Policies, Plans and Programmes

Biodiversity is an old concept which has gained prominence in recent years due to its rapid loss and the need for urgent action to halt its loss. It recognised that biodiversity has been around and used by man to meet his various needs. However, in a bid to satisfy his basic need, coupled with population increase, inconsistent and inflexible policies and break down of law and order, biodiversity has been squandered, misused, overused and abused with varying consequences.
