Trócaire has been addressing gender issues throughout its history and is proud of its success in redressing imbalances especially in economic empowerment and resource access.
This guide reviews the problem of subordination of women in the agricultural context, lists some of ways in which Trócaire and others are tackling the challenge and highlights successful methods.
It makes practical recommendations on gender analysis in the agriculture setting, on choice of agriculture and natural resource management models which are transformative, on enhancement of women’s access to technical information, on matching equipment to women’s physical requirements, on ownership and maintenance of communal installations, on livestock types and breeds, on gendered value-chain interventions and on promotion of policies and strategies which support women farmers.
