Women Matter: Overcoming Gender Barriers to Agricultural Development

On Tuesday, April 5th, 2011 SIANI had the pleasure of coordinating the opening seminar to a four day writeshop on “Why Women Matter in Agriculture: Overcoming Gender Barriers to Agricultural Development”. The event, open to the public, and attended by over 50 participants, was designed as a kick-off for the writeshop deliberations which followed with a smaller group of invited experts.

The event took place at Sida Headquarters in Stockholm. It brought together speakers from Eastern and Southern Africa to discuss the role of women and the importance of gender in the contemporary agricultural development discourse.
