Gender Aware Approaches in Agricultural Programmes: A study of Sida-supported Agricultural Programmes.

This report overviews a number of gender and agriculture programs, intended to inform Sida programming on gender integration. The report studies agricultural programs in Zambia, Ethiopia, Mozambique, Nicaragua, and Kenya. Main findings from the overview suggest that extension services need to be more integrated in a majority of the countries surveyed. Furthermore, interventions should focus on providing an asset base for women that combines different assets and services. Asset provision must be tailored to women's specific needs. Farnworth also concludes that national level policies must be gender-sensitive, sex-disaggregated data is necessary for all projects, and food security and equitable market development are critical areas for intervention.
