Christine Katz - Speaker

The debate about land use concepts integrating ecologic, societal and economic aspects is still ongoing. Gender issues hereby mostly refer to social and work relations, an integrated perspective is missing. The session will focus on this deficiency and give input via theoretical and empirical approaches to highlight the linkages between gender relations and sustainable land use.
The organizers will open the session with a brief overview on gender aspects in the land use debate and ask “What is done, what is missing?” The submitted papers should contribute to this debate. “Requested are papers dealing with an integrating approach (research and practice), focusing on (e.g.)
gender justice and gender competence, gender and (rural) space, gender policy in rural development, nature-gender-relations, food security and climate change in rural areas.
