Book on Women’s Issues in Philippine Agroforestry to be Launched

Elena Javier, gender coordinator for LTRA-5 in Southeast Asia, has announced that she and her colleagues are launching a new book, “Holding their own: smallholder production, marketing and women issues in Philippine agroforestry.” An event to launch the book will be part of the programme of a research symposium held by the Social Development Research Center (SDRC) on March 28th, 2012.

This book is, in part, the result of research with collaborators at the SANREM CRSP Phase 3 research site in Mindanao, the Philippines. Maria Elisa Christie, Gender Equity Coordinator for the SANREM CRSP, helped stimulate this research with her Cross-Cutting Research Activity (CCRA) on Gendered Access to Markets.

The research symposium at which the book will be launched is entitled “SDRC@33: Learning and Leading though Collaborative Research,” and will take place in Manila, the Philippines.
