Arise Magazine ISSUE 52: Women & Natural Resource Management

Dear Friends,

I want to take this opportunity to introduce to you ISSUE 52 of the Arise Magazine themed “Women and Natural Resource Management.”

My guess is that many of you know that women clearly outdo men in terms of their involvement in use, management and conservation of natural resources, yet they face categorical exclusion and are denied equal sharing of access to, and benefits from natural resources.

This is caused by a number of factors like un-equal power relations, and the patriarchal nature of our society that demeans and belittles women.

Consequently, in order to promote a participatory culture in the use, management and conservation of natural resources like land, livestock, agriculture, oil, fisheries and forests, this Issue recommends that policy makers, planners and development workers have a better understanding of the relative and often shifting roles of men and women in natural resource management, including division of labor, access to resources, decision-making and traditional knowledge and practices.

The magazine also includes sector- specific recommendations that delineate women’s roles in natural resource management.

Below are some highlights of what’s contained in the issue:

From Your Leaders’ Mouth!
Undue Influence from a Rotten Institution: Corruption in Natural Resource Management
Will Ugandan Women Benefit from Oil? Lessons from Ghana
Women and Men in Agriculture: Closing the Gender Gap
Nature’s Pharmacy
How to Get Beautiful Naturally
Women and Lang Rights: The time is reap to act differently
Mainstreaming Gender in Natural Resource Management; among others.

It is hence my wish that you enjoy reading the Magazine; which can be accessed by following this link: or can be downloaded as it is attached.

Please feel free to share this version with in your networks, and to send back your opinions with reference to the quality, content and design of the magazine.

Looking forward to hearing from you.
