In Africa, close to 70% of the population rely on agriculture as a source of their livelihoods. The sector contributes up to 23% to the GDP in most of the African countries and hence remains critical to local and regional economies. It is the basis for food security and an important source of employment, particularly for women who provide much of labor. Despite the women contribution to the sector, their participation is limited by factors including inequitable access to agricultural inputs, including family labour, high-yield crops, pesticides, and fertilizer, legal and cultural status, exclusion from alternative employment options and inheritance laws. In the spirit of achieving the aspiration of vision 2030 of leaving no one behind and particularly women, there is need to understand through gender analysis the extent to which women are included in the agricultural sector. Gender analysis provides information to integrate a gender perspective into policies, programmes and projects. To add on, conducting a gender analysis allows for the development of interventions that address gender inequalities and meet the different needs of women and men. This 5 days course will equip participants with knowledge about specific set of frameworks and methods for participants to use in order to integrate gender components into their agricultural projects and programs. Participants will also gain gender analysis skills through effective and systematic analysis of contexts and also be able to plan development from a gender equality perspective.
