  • Synopsis
    The majority of women in the South have a close and complex relationship to their surroundings. They are profoundly affected by environmental degradation, as they depend directly on natural resources for their livlihoods. Their need for access to these resources often goes unrecognised, as does their role as producers and envronmental managers. At times of natural disasters they are particularly vulnerable. This book is a collection of these complex relationships between women and the environment.
