V2V Thematic Webinar in February

This talk provides a high-level overview of the various tools and perspectives for undertaking gender-focused or feminist analysis in resource sectors such as small-scale fisheries. Drawing from gender studies, feminist political ecology, feminist political economy, and political science, this talk will dispel the idea that gender analysis means only focusing on women. It will show how understanding the many dimensions of gender roles and relations can improve the analysis of resource management and economic activity, expand our understanding of vulnerability and empowerment, and advance policy-relevant outcomes.
