BOOK Gender Aspects of Sustainable Development: A Global Overview





Open for innovations (in the form of a book chapter) exploring gender, sustainability/climate change and nutrition

MY 30, 2023

Springer, Science for Sustainable Societies Series


Published by Springer, this book contributes to sustainability since the chapters will focus on various approaches taken by women for sustainability as well as challenges faced by them, which will serve as examples of good practices as well as shed light on disparities. The manuscript has incorporated issues of gender inclusion from various sectors, including conservation, natural resource management, water and sanitation, climate vulnerability, fashion, as well as technology. Addressing gender biases and gender-specific impacts of global environmental changes is crucial to facilitate inclusive development. Addressing these issues will also facilitate identifying solutions and create pathways for women empowerment. Identifying good practices and examples of sustainable practices by women worldwide will act as a handbook and guide for accelerating and leveling up women’s involvement in sustainable development.
