In recent years there has been an increasing emphasis placed on linking the conservation of natural resources with the development of local communities through ICDPs (Integrated Conservation and Development Projects) and CBNRM (Community Based Natural Resource Management). At the same time, pressures have increased for a more equitable development process drawing in otherwise marginalized groups such as women. However there is inexperience and a lack of knowledge concerning how to achieve this. The "Engendering" Eden research program aimed to fill some of the existing gaps on issues concerned with the relationships between women, gender and ICDPs. It aimed to understand what differences and inequities exist within communities and how these affect participation and the distribution of benefits and costs in relation to conservation and development. Lessons concerning how to address gender issues and women's exclusion have been learnt and recommendations made as to how to incorporate them into future work to achieve more equitable conservation policy and practice.
