The central theme of this edition of Nature & Faune journal is “Enhancing gender equality in the management of Africa's natural resources”. It reviews the situation including achievements and challenges related to adequacy, equity and equality in the roles the two genders play in natural resources management. It is common knowledge that in general, women tend to be the disadvantaged party in many cases. In recent years, gender issues have been at the center of high level consultations in Africa and elsewhere in the world. The recent African Union Summit of Heads of States in Malabo, Equatorial Guinea endorsed the theme of the January 2015 Summit of the African Union as: Year of women's empowerment and development towards Africa's Agenda 2063. Year 2015 also coincides with the Beijing plus 20 Conference which will commemorate the 20th anniversary of the Fourth World Conference on Women in Beijing and review progress in implementing the Beijing Platform for Action. This edition of Nature & Faune journal is a contribution of Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) to these processes, reflecting FAO’s strong commitment to gender equality and women’s empowerment.
