New in HOORC's Library: women in Okavango fisheries

Fishing on the Thamalakane River 2007

Integrating gender and livelihoods in a biodiversity project : a case study of the invisible stakeholders in the Okavango Delta Panhandle, a Master's thesis by Barbara Herrero Cangas for the University College London, looks at how women are participating in the fisheries co-management work of the BIOKAVANGO Project. Cangas' interviews with women who fish with traditional baskets to support their families in the Okavango Delta Panhandle uncovered gender differences in levels of participation and information sharing in the development work. You can find the thesis in HOORC's Library.
