This manual which focuses on women in Asia highlights the major issues of environmental degradation, and presents success stories of women promoting environmental management and sustainable development in the region. It provides trainers and extension workers with skills and techniques to train and involve women in conservation activities. It acknowledges the valuable indigenous knowledge which women in Asia possess and emphasises that women themselves must be involved in the identification of their needs.



Case Studies in Natural Resource Management

The women's organisations discussed in this section are grassroots organisations whose members depend on natural resources for subsistence and who have come together to conserve the resource base. Each of the organisations were formed for very specific reasons, but they all demonstrate a common goal and commitment to conservation. They also have some common needs; for example, the need to access resources, credit systems, and information.
