The impacts of tree plantations on women, and women-led resistance
September 21st marks International Day of Struggle Against Monoculture Tree Plantations, a day to celebrate resistance against the establishment and expansion of harmful commercial monocultures. To commemorate the occasion and amplify the struggles of Indigenous Peoples, local communities and in particular women, this year we are launching our new report on the gender-differentiated impacts of tree plantations and women-led resistance to industrial forestry. The report has contributions from 10 GFC member groups from different regions showing how these ‘green desserts’ negatively impact the environment and communities, with an emphasis on the impacts that women suffer.

During this webinar our member groups will present concrete examples of the gender-differentiated impacts of monoculture and commercial tree plantations and also how women’s rights groups and other civil society organisations are working to overcome them through protest and gender-responsive, community-led alternatives to the tree plantation model.
