Article of the Week
When More Women are Decision-Makers, the Environment Wins
A recent study from the University of Colorado, Boulder describes how when at least half of a group is composed of women, the group conserves more, especially when financially incentives are in play. With Payments for Ecosystem Services becoming more common, a process by which groups are paid to not remove natural resources, being attuned to the impact the presence of women has on making environmental decisions is valuable. This study provides insight into how this could help reduce deforestation and increase conservation efforts.
