Integrating gender concerns into natural resource management: the case of the Pichavaram mangroves, Tamil Nadu



Integrating gender concerns into natural resource management: the case of the Pichavaram mangroves, Tamil Nadu



Indian Journal of Gender Studies 8(2): 195-206



The deep shift after the late 1970s in ways of thinking, seeing and acting led to the quest for small localized narratives, and participatory approaches committed to equity. This paper describes an attempt to integrate a participatory approach and gender concerns in problem analysis, planning, implementation, monitoring and evaluation in a project to conserve and manage the Pichavaram mangrove forests in Tamil Nadu, India.
