Abstract This paper provides a general review and a case study of women’s involvement in environmental management in Nasarawa State. Primary data were generated from a questionnaire survey of women from five local government areas. Majority of the women (80%) are involved in farming and contributed significantly to land/soil conservation. Seventy percent of them have planted trees or flowers in the last five years, while 79 % indicated clearing their surrounding daily, in terms of sweeping, clearing drainages, and refuse disposal. Problems being faced by the women include lack of waste disposal equipment, poor drainage systems, and lack of awareness among the general public. Appropriate recommendations were proffered to enhance women’s involvement in environmental protection and management.
