   schema:description "At a time when the world is reeling from multiple economic and ecological crises, an international cast of ecologists and gender specialists from the Global North and Global South provide a multidisciplinary perspective on gender, sustainability, and livelihoods. With the 20 year review of the United Nations Conference on Environment and Development to be held in Brazil in 2012, this book boldly reclaims the concept of sustainable livelihoods for women. Authors from 10 different countries show how women engage in policy decision on climate change and consumptions, managing solidarity economies, farming, micro credit, value chains, and strategies in post-conflict contexts. -- Back cover."@en ;
