“The sourcebook provides an up-to-date understanding of gender issues and a rich compilation of compelling evidence of good practices and lessons learned. The sourcebook is aimed at the practitioner both in international and regional development agencies and national governments. More specifically, it speaks to the needs of operational staff who design and implement lending projects and technical officers who design thematic programs and technical assistance packages. It is intended to provide guidance on how to integrate gender into agricultural projects and programs, and captures and expands upon the gender equity and women’s empowerment principles of the World Development Report 2008: Agriculture for Development”.
