January 23, 2018

Researchers from DEGRP agriculture project Gender and pro-poor agricultural growth: non-farm/farm linkages and village dynamics in sub-Saharan Africa have just published an open access bookAgriculture, Diversification, and Gender in Rural Africa’. 

Based on findings from longitudinal research in 6 African countries – Ghana, Kenya, Malawi, Tanzania, Zambia and Mozambique – the book explores how smallholder farmers’ livelihoods have changed over time, with a special focus on how changes have affected male- and female-headed households differently.
