The book, “TAAT Gender Mainstreaming Guide”, was co-authored by the Forum for Agricultural Research in Africa (FARA) and the Africa Women in Agricultural Research & Development (AWARD) with funding support from the African Development Bank (AfDB) through the Technologies for African Agricultural Transformation (TAAT) – Capacity Development & Technology Outreach (CDTO) Compact.
Gender considerations are of utmost importance in agricultural technology development, dissemination, and use, as these considerations confer an excellent dividend to the overall impact of technology adoption. Hence, the Technologies for African Agricultural Transformation (TAAT) Project consider gender as a critical component and demands that gender should be integrated through designing and implementing interventions.
Based on findings from the assessment led by AWRAD, this guide proposes two approaches for gender mainstreaming.
The guide also recommends key action areas TAAT partners and stakeholders should do if proper gender mainstreaming has to happen, women and men are equally benefited from the project interventions.
The book is free and accessible.
