    Also available in:
    No results found.

    The training guide Gender-Responsive Disaster Risk Reduction in the Agriculture Sector is intended primarily for policy-makers and practitioners, who have a good understanding of disasters but limited knowledge of gender issues, and work on DRR policies, plans, information systems, or other activities related to disaster-prone communities. Its main objective is to present theoretical and practical approaches to address gender issues in DRR strategies for the agriculture sector, illustrating some stories on how gender issues cut across men’s and women’s experiences of disaster risk and can be addressed in DRR decision-making. This guide also provides an overview of a gender-responsive planning process, and guidance on how to collect sex-disaggregated data and conduct a gender analysis, including a glossary of key terms and a tool box of qualitative data collection methods.

    Agri-Gender Statistics Toolkit for Central Asia and Turkey 2016
    Also available in:

    This publication is a methodological tool and a guiding resource prepared under the “Strengthening national capacities for production and analysis of sex-disaggregated data through the implementation of the FAO Gender and Agriculture Framework (GASF)” project, funded by the FAO / Turkey Partnership Programme (FTTP). The project was implemented from 2013 to 31 May, 2016, and targeted national statistical offices and ministries of agriculture of three countries: Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan and Turkey, with the overall objective to assist the beneficiaries in developing gender-sensitive statistics on the agricultural and rural sector, to assess the current status of the rural population – both women and men – and to ensure evidence-based and informed policymaking processes. The contents of the toolkit were validated at three national workshops held respectively in Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan and Turkey from July 2015 to April 2016.

    Making sense of gender and land statistics 2016
    Also available in:
    No results found.

    Land statistics disaggregated by sex are useful for showcasing the disparities in land rights between women and men. They also provide a sense of women’s economic empowerment in agriculture. Unfortunately, land statistics are not always used properly. We want to help you understand and interpret better the different land statistics available in FAO’s Gender and Land Rights Database (GLRD). We invite you to travel with us to a rural community in Sub-Saharan Africa and meet Tafadzwa, Wema and Chim ango who will tell us their story. Our hosts are part of the same extended family, they all contribute to the family farm and yet the data collected about them differ greatly as a result of their relationships to each other and to agricultural land. Their situation reflects well the situation in their country about gender differences in land rights.
