PODCAST – The Role of Gender in Population, Health, and Environment ProgramsJune 21, 2007 By Sean Peoples
Gender is an oft-debated topic in the development community, usually focusing on ways to build equity and equality for women. So what are the appropriate roles of women and men? Who should take on responsibilities such as environmental management? What about family planning and reproductive health?
In the following podcast, experts Karen Hardee, senior adviser in reproductive health, HIV/AIDS, and monitoring and evaluation at John Snow, Inc.; and Elin Torell, coastal resources specialist at the University of Rhode Island’s Coastal Resources Center, address these questions, and specifically discuss the role of gender in field-based projects that incorporate population, health, and environment components.
Hardee and Torell presented research on this topic at length at an event sponsored by the Wilson Center’s Environmental Change and Security Program on June 19, 2007.
