This book is the result of a process to better understand the role of gender in agriculture that was initiated by the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (Sida) in 2009, and then included a series of seminars and workshops. The book is organized under chapters on: developing empowerment pathways; transforming the enabling environment; capturing and using data on gender; household methodologies; community empowerment; land; value chains; ‘climate-smart’ agriculture and beyond; and conclusion. TK-related sections are included in several chapters. The chapter on community empowerment includes a case study on engaging traditional leadership for women’s rights in Zambia; and the chapter on climate-smart agriculture addresses among other issues opportunities to tap into women’s traditional knowledge to support climate change adaptation.
