Gender and social capital: the importance of gender differences for the maturity and effectiveness of natural resource management groups



World Development Oxford 33(11): 1783-1799



This paper seeks to contribute to an improved understanding of the gender aspects of social capital manifested in groups for natural resource management (NRM). We investigated how gender differentiated social groups differ in their activities and outcomes for NRM. A total of 46 men's, mixed, and women's groups were analysed in 33 rural programmes in 20 countries of Latin America, Africa, and Asia.
