"As farmers, foresters and providers, women have a unique understanding of the ecosystems they live alongside. A pioneering radio programme in Malawi is tapping into this immense body of knowledge by creating a platform for women to engage in landscape restoration."

From an International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN) Forest Brief, this document discusses work done by Farm Radio Trust (FRT) on gender-sensitive radio programming on forest landscape restoration in Malawi to support the Bonn Challenge and African Forest Landscape Restoration Initiative of restoring land to agriculture as part of Malawi’s Vision 2020, a national long-term development strategy. A National Forest Landscape Restoration (FLR) Strategy was developed that included embedding women "firmly in the decision-making and implementation process."
