Outline

Outline

  • Why engender research in LIVES?

  • How does LIVES gender work intersect with ILRI’s CG research plan on Livestock and Fish?

  • Research approaches to incorporating gender in all VC /Commodity work

  • Concluding Remarks/Questions


Why engender research

Why “engender” research?

  • In many countries, women make up a larger percentage of the agricultural labor

  • Women participate along the entire agricultural value chain, contributing as producers, distributors, processors, storers, and marketers, as well as, being responsible for feeding their families


Female share of the agricultural labor force

FEMALE SHARE OF THE AGRICULTURAL LABOR FORCE

Women, on average, comprise 43% of the agricultural labor force in developing countries and account for an estimated two-thirds of the world’s 600 million poor livestock keepers.

Female headed households

FEMALE-HEADED HOUSEHOLDS

A significant share of households in all regions are headed by women, yet their access to productive resources and services are limited.

Farming First (http://www.farmingfirst.org/women)


Women face gender constraints

WOMEN FACE “GENDER CONSTRAINTS”

Women have:

  • Less access to land, less money to buy land, using more borrowed or illegal land

  • Fewer head of livestock than male-headed households

  • Higher number of orphans living in female-headed households than male headed

  • USAID, 2003


Gender constraints and productivity

GENDER CONSTRAINTS AND PRODUCTIVITY

  • Fewer agricultural inputs, such as improved seed and fertilizer, used by female-headed households

  • Less access to extension services and improved technologies


Closing the gender gap for agriculture

CLOSING THE “GENDER GAP” FOR AGRICULTURE

State of Food and Agriculture FAO 2011


Crp 3 7 livestock and fish gender outcome and outputs

CRP 3.7 Livestock and Fish Gender Outcome and Outputs

Outcome:

“Poor women, men and marginalized groups have improved and more equitable access to affordable animal source foods through gender equitable interventions”

http://livestock-fish.wikispaces.com/Gender+and+Learning


Crp 3 7 gender outputs

CRP 3.7 Gender Outputs:

Output 1:Increased gender capacity within CG, partner organizations, and value chain actors to diagnose and overcome gender based constraints within value chains Output 2:Strategies and approaches developed through which women and marginalized groups improve the nature and level of participation in livestock and fish value chains


Crp 3 7 gender outputs continued

CRP 3.7 Gender Outputs (Continued):

Output 3:Strategies and approaches that increase women and marginalized groups entitlement to access markets and control resources, technologies, labor, power and the benefits of their work

Output 4:Strategies and approaches to promote increased level and equity in animal source food consumption within poor households


Lives gender objectives

LIVES Gender Objectives

  • To increase equity of gender roles in value chain nodes and chain governance of high value livestock commodities and irrigated crops

  • To increase gender sensitive knowledge management and capacity building interventions in high value livestock commodities and irrigated crops

  • To ensure gender sensitive approachesare used by LIVES’s research and development partners


Gender sensitive research steps in value chain development

Gender Sensitive Research Steps in Value Chain Development

  • Map Gender Roles & Relationships along the VC

  • Identify gender constraints along the VC

  • Assess the consequences of the gender constraints

  • Identify and implement actions to overcome constraints

  • Carry out Action Research

  • Measure outcomes of implementations


Integrating gender in agricultural vc

Gender sensitive knowledge m anagement and capacity building research approach

Gender sensitive knowledge management and capacity building research approach

  • Identify formal/informal institutions involved in brokering knowledge and capacity development

  • Identify knowledge and capacity development methods used by different institutions

  • Identify knowledge magt/capacity building institutions and methods that ensure access for men and women

  • Identify constraints and its implications on gender

  • propose gender sensitive knowledge/capacity development intervention

  • Action Research

  • Measuring the outcomes of the intervention/action


Gender sensitive knowledge management and capacity building research outputs outcomes

Gender sensitive Knowledge Management and capacity building Research outputs/outcomes

  • Diagnostic research output

  • Role of informal institutions/farmer to farmer in knowledge sharing by and for women

  • Couples training

  • Involvement of young family members in FHH

  • Action research


Final remarks

Final Remarks

  • The VC for all types of High value commodities should be seen through a gender lens while research agenda is set for LIVES

  • Gender sensitive diagnostic and action research need to give insight on innovative ways of Knowledge Management and Capacity building interventions
