Asian societies are not only complex but are undergoing rapid change in the face of the forces of globalization and privatization. Issues of gender, class, caste, ethnicity and age are central to understanding power relations and decision-making processes concerning the access to, use of and management of natural resources.This necessitates a sound understanding of social realities in order to ensure proper participation in, and the equitable distribution of the benefits of, development interventions and policies. Written in this framework, this volume documents and reflects on the steps being taken by researchers of natural resource management to implement social and gender analysis in South and Southeast Asia. Grounded in empirical reality, the six case studies are drawn from India, Nepal, China, Viet Nam and Mongolia. The volume concludes with a comparative analysis of the six cases. This analysis highlights the key common issues and challenges identified by the research teams. These include organizational change, mainstreaming social and gender issues, the enduring inequities facing women, and improving the quality of participation. Printed Pages: 252.
