Advancing Gender Equality through Agricultural and Environmental Research: Past, Present and Future


R Pyburn, A van Eerdewijk

This book marks a shift away from a typical, instrumentalist outlook focused on how gender analysis can contribute to research objectives, such as improved productivity. Contributors intentionally flip the question to ask: How does agricultural and environmental research and development contribute to gender equality and women’s empowerment? By reframing the analysis, the book puts gender equality and women’s empowerment at the center of agricultural development.
