Honoring a Commitment to Sustainable Development:
Incorporation of Women's Knowledge and Voices
Geographic focus: USA / Deadwood, Oregon
Date completed: 2002
Community members are connected to their environmental resources in ways that bureaucracies are not, and in some theoretical approaches, women are connected to these resources in unique ways. Jennifer Almquist, a student at Oregon State University, conducted extensive interviews, evaluated community activities, and reviewed resource management documents to create a stewardship pilot model for Deadwood, Oregon, that recognizes the role of women in community resource development. She used GIS to map the data collected during her research.
