Gender In Africa RISING - Ethiopia[edit | edit source]

Introduction[edit | edit source]

Female farmers play a central role in African agriculture and family well-being. They account for the majority of the agricultural workforce. However, agricultural research and extension are disproportionately led by and directed to men. Women often own few resources and are unable to make decisions over their use. Lack of awareness, knowledge and skills and unfavorable gender norms are some of the main constraining factors to women’s participation in decision making on agricultural production. There is an urgent need for greater representation of women farmers in agricultural research and extension interventions. Involvement of women in technology design and testing will equipment them with knowledge and skills to make informed decisions, increase productivity and generate more income. This will also enhance their access to and control over productive resources and benefits from their labor.
