Gender and pro-poor agricultural growth
This project considered the interaction between the farm and the non-farm sectors during processes of agricultural growth while refining gender analysis, in Ghana, Kenya, Malawi, Mozambique, Tanzania and Zambia.
The study assessed under what social and institutional conditions pro-poor agricultural growth entrenches or redresses gender-based differences in access to agrarian resources, and what consequences this has for linkages to the non-farm sector. Broad-based agricultural growth will be examined from a gender perspective and, to situate these processes locally, against the backdrop of national agricultural policies and broader demographic, socio-economic changes.
The research was conducted at village, household and individual levels through three key questions:
- How can the consequences of gender-differentiated access to productive and institutional resources during processes of broad-based agricultural growth be understood?
- How can linkages between agriculture and the non-farm sector be analysed from a gender perspective, given that non-farm income may be important in alleviating inferior access to agrarian resources among women in particular?
- What village-level characteristics are relevant to understanding the dynamics of broad-based agricultural growth and non-farm/farm interaction from a gender perspective?
