Gender Mainstreaming in Agriculture and Rural Development Training


(versed professional services) #1

INTRODUCTION

Agriculture is central to the livelihoods of the rural poor and in attainment of suitable development goals; gender equality further plays a crucial role in the achievement of these goals. However, gender differences arising from the socially constructed relationships between men and women affect the distribution of resources between them and cause many disparities in development. Consequently; gender issues must be addressed because agriculture can be the engine of growth that is necessary to reduce food insecurity and rural poverty. This training course is therefore intended to help participants address gender issues and integrate gender responsive actions in the design and implementation of agricultural projects and rural development programs.
