NEW FROM IFPRI AUTHORS: Integrating gender into small-scale irrigation

TITLE: Integrating gender into small-scale irrigation

AUTHORS: Sophie Theis, Nicole Lefore, Elizabeth Bryan, Claudia Ringler, and Ruth Meinzen-Dick


ABSTRACT: Small-Scale Irrigation (SSI) interventions, like other development interventions, need to take into account men’s and women’s context specific roles in agriculture and their related gender-based preferences and challenges. Understanding gender differences related to SSI technologies can help us improve targeting and better anticipate and monitor the impact of technologies on different people. Gender analysis is relevant to any SSI program, whether it seeks to avoid harm to women, to serve both men and women, or to advance women’s empowerment.
