The Gender in Agriculture Source book

This presents a rich compilation of experiences, some of them ongoing, in which agricultural projects have incorporated gender-related components or adapted their operations to allow for gender variables and engage issues that affect men and women differently. Women continue to face greater difficulties in accessing information, extension, advisory services, and education as well as in owning or acquiring land and technology compared to men.

See Module 7 on Gender in Agricultural Innovation and Education for more details.
