|Christine Okali: Linking livelihoods and gender analysis for achieving gender transformative change FAO LSP WP41, Access to Natural Resources Sub-Programme
Seeks specifically to identify the links between the theme of gender and livelihoods perspectives that became popular in the late 1990s. The question being addressed is not whether gender has disappeared as livelihoods perspectives have moved into natural resources programmes, but rather whether this new paradigm has been able to advance gender interests and in what ways a closer alignment of the two might be beneficial to both.
