Gender Equality in Rural Advisory Services
During recent years there has been increased global attention to women’s equal economic opportunities. Women’s roles in agricultural production are a central aspect of this , as well as the perspective of improving food and nutritional security for poor families. Women’s equal access to rural advisory services is therefore crucial.
Therefore GFRAS published a brief entiteled "Gender Equality in Rural Advisory Services" that explains the concept of gender equality in advisory services and discusses the opportunities that gender equality in RAS can create for global and local food production, women’s economic empowerment, household food security, and nutrition. It summarises experiences of how gender equality can be pursued in advisory services and provides some practical examples.
