Gender and generation matter
This briefing showcases how the different experiences of men, women, younger and older people inform new ways to improve livelihoods and encourage sustainable development. It presents the results of a study exploring how to ensure that gender and generation are addressed more consistently in the work of IIED and its partners.
Gender is still largely considered to be about women rather than about a vital dynamic in society. And often gender issues are seen as a concern of the global north. The interlocking of production and social reproduction, the formal and informal sectors, and the constantly evolving relations between men and women, and between younger and older generations, are at the heart of this dynamic. A strong analysis of gender and generation is crucial to understanding power imbalances and being able to influence them.
