Employment Generation and Gender Dimension in the Common Property Resource Based Activities of the Monpa Tribal Women in Tawang District of Arunachal Pradesh, India

Ram Krishna Mandal

Abstract:
Common Property Resources were very much important and crucial for the economies of the tribal people specifically for the women. Unfortunately development agencies gave little bit interest for the needs and interest of the tribal women in the implementation of any programme and policy. Women’s role is crucial in the family and household economy, yet women have not been given equal rights in social, political as well as economic fields. The necessity of improvement of status of women has been recognized all over the world as an important aspect of national progress and development. Apart from the day to day household work, varied farm activities and other domestic responsibilities, women particularly in this tribal society spare a substantial time for Common Property Resources (CPRs) based activities. Keeping this fact in mind, the present study is a modest attempt to analyze the importance of common property resources on the life of the tribal women. The study also envisages constructing a household model of women participation on common property resource based activity using evidence from rural study area. Forest/CPR based collection for daily household purposes completely depended on the females in the study area. Women were engaged averagely at least 4.16 h per day in CPR based collection for their daily household purposes where as the males spent only 3.09 h daily in CPRs-based activities. In the study area, it is seen that employment of male would reduce dependency on CPRs at a large but employment of female would reduce dependency on CPRs a very little.
