Heleen van den Hombergh : Gender, Environment and Development

A guide to the literature



A systematic approach to work in the fields of gender, environment and development (GED) which will help students find their way round the large body of literature associated with both policy-making and development theory. To those working on the practical side, the theory will enable many readers to re-think their assumptions. Those who work on the theoretical side will gain insights into the more practical aspects of their work, such as the effect of debt on women and the environment, or the application of the gender perspective to local-scale resource management. The bibliography comprises 50 pages. Not only important to scholars, this work is an excellent guide to librarians building their collection in this new area of research.



'"Essential reading for those interested in the development of gender studies and the environment." The Geographical Journal

"Undoubtedly a valuable text for anyone wanting to improve their understanding of gender, environment and development." Environmental Education and Information'
