EU Asia Link: Gender and Sustainable Development

Project Details


The project focused on gender and sustainable development in Asia, exploring this through a series of nested projects that examine environment, labour politics and health and wellbeing.

The University of Brighton contributed to the theme on gender dimensions of natural resource exploitation and management.

Key findings

Findings centre on the ways in which gender emerges as a political, negotiated and contested element of social relationships in natural resource management interventions. Overall, the project offered a challenge to narrow gender mainstreaming agendas in complex environmental contexts.
