MPRA Paper from University Library of Munich, Germany

Abstract: Deforestation has now taken the center stage in the climate change debate which has become a heavily politicized process. We argue that involvement of women in that process can be instrumental in reducing deforestation. We find significant and robust evidence for this hypothesis in a cross-section of 163 countries covering 1990–2010. Our results have important policy implications and call for wider involvement of women in the climate change debates and policy making.
