Migration and Gendered Landscapes: Adding a Gender Dimension to CIFOR’s Research on Mobility

Collaborating Partner: Centre for International Forestry Research
Duration: July 2016 to March 2017
The aim of this project was to produce a peer-reviewed paper through further analysis of the household survey and qualitative data gathered during CIFOR and Social Science Baha’s collaborative research on gender, migration, and forest governance, which examined the nexus between transnational migratory flows, gender equity, and the governance of forests through case studies from Nepal. It also had the added objective of conducting an analysis of policies related to land use change to understand how they consider issues related to migration and whether they are conducive to leveraging migration and remittances for investment in land.
