            Abstract

            This article examines and analyses the Cuban government's plan to increase forest cover and the role of women within the forestry workforce. It argues that the plan will not be achieved without re-evaluating the role of women in the management of forest resources. The concept of sustainability in the project recognises that women are agents of change, that both genders contribute with their differences and that implementation should promote gender equity and focus attention on the different interests and needs of women and men.
