Women in developing countries play a crucial role in meeting the food and nutrition needs of their families through the three pillars of food security which are; food production, economic access to food, and nutrition security. Despite women's importance, they are constrained by lower access to land, credit and extension advice, as well as by domestic responsibilities. These constraints have consequences for productivity, efficiency and environmental sustainability. To address these, different approaches can be taken to make the design of agricultural projects gender-sensitive.
This course provides guidance on how to design and implement agriculture policies and programmes that are gender-responsive, sustainable, contributing to gender equality, and therefore able to improve food and nutrition security.
At the end of the training, the learner will be able to:
TOPICS TO BE COVERED
Overview of gender concepts and principles
Gender Access to:
Gender in food and nutrition security policy and legislation
Gender in food and nutrition security programming
Gender-sensitive monitoring and evaluation for food and nutrition security
