  • A user guide tailored for practioners working with rural communities in tropics.
  • Gender roles and responsibiities play a huge role in adoption and development of agroforestry systems.
  • This guide provides practical approaches for understanding gender roles in farming, preference of tree and shrubs, production and marketing of tree products, access to information and resources, and gendered lenses of land use.
  • Gender is often overlooked in assessment and management approaches by extenionists and NGOs, and thus this guide provides practical activities for participatory research and nuanced decision-making processes.
