Gender and REDD+ in Tanzania

Gender and REDD+

REDD will often have gender-differentiated impacts. Women are generally more vulnerable to adverse impacts and loss of benefits. TNRF in collaboration with the Tanzania Forest Conservation Group (TFCG) and the Tanzania Community Forest Network (MJUMITA) have published a new report and information briefing on gender and REDD in Tanzania.  The briefing and report include information and strategies to support REDD participants in understanding and realizing gender equity and women’s empowerment in Tanzania.
