Does the gender composition of forest and fishery management groups affect resource governance and conservation outcomes: a systematic map protocol
In the fields of environmental governance and biodiversity conservation, there is a growing awareness that gender has an influence on resource use and management. Several studies argue that empowering women in resource governance can lead to beneficial outcomes for resource sustainability and biodiversity conservation.
Here we focus on the forestry and fisheries sectors to answer the primary question: What is the evidence that the gender composition of forest and fishery management groups affects resource governance and conservation outcomes? This protocol provides the details of the methodology we will use to produce a systematic map of the evidence and highlight where further research is needed.
