Research on gender and environmental governance in other disciplines has focused mainly on women's near absence from community forestry institutions. This presentation reverses that focus and asks: what if women were present in these institutions? Would that affect resource conservation and regeneration? Based on primary data on communities managing local forests in India and Nepal, the author provides some answers.
