In the 4 Returns community, we wanted to honor Women’s Month by shining some light on all the hard-working women who are restoring land, farming, and maintaining their communities. 60-80% of the world’s small-holder farmers are women. Regardless of the important role they play in nurturing, feeding, and maintaining their land and their communities, they tend to have relatively little decision-making power when it comes to their land. Involving and supporting more women in decision-making processes could be immensely beneficial for landscape restoration.

On March 23rd
, we, therefore, invited Namita Misra to talk about the role women play in landscape restoration in India. One of the overarching questions we discussed was “How can we empower more women to participate in large-scale landscape restoration activities?” Watch the recording here if you would like to learn more about the Indian context.
