''Women play an essential role in the management of natural resources, including soil, water, forests and energy and often have a profound traditional and contemporary knowledge of the natural world around them'' (World Bank).However, attention needs to be paid on the differential cause and effect of environmental degradation on men and women; and importantly, the role of women as agents of change in mitigation and adaptation to the changing environment. It is very true that men and women use resources differently and have different roles in society.
However, in order to be effective, strategies to preserve and sustain the environment should pay close attention to the impact of the disparities between women and men's access to environmental and natural resources and opportunities.
