Dear friends and colleagues,
Welcome to the ninth edition of the FTA Gender Integration Team Newsletter: Focus on Gender. In this issue we would like to commemorate International Women´s Day.
This year´s theme is ´the working world of women´. In line with this, the newsletter features a research study on gender and oil palm production and two exciting videos telling the story of the female oil palm farmers in Indonesia. In this issue you can also find an invitation to our up coming side event during the Commission on the Status of Women (CSW 2017) in New York (March 13-24). And, as usual, you can find our latest news, publications, updates and upcoming events.
Please feel free to share with us any gender and forests related resources, tools or information you may have. Your comments and feedback on the newsletter are welcome and encouraged. To get in touch, please email Ana Maria Paez Valencia.
