Event: Training Course on Gender Approaches to Agricultural Extension Practices

Venue: Indepth Research Training Centre, Nairobi, Westlands.

Event Date: 17th – 21st October 2016


Gender sensitivity in agricultural practices and extension is an important area that affects people of all walks in life. It entails gender equity, gender roles and further implies that roles should not be ascribed for instance to the females alone, or the males exclusively as this will amount to set back to the progress of agriculture.

This training highlights such gender related issues and presents strategies for meeting them. We explore various ways of delivery of agricultural extension services in a way that improves gender-equitable service provision.

Training Objective

By the end of the course, learners will be able to:

  • Develop programmes, centered on women's needs and constraints, in accomplishing their tasks
  • Raising awareness of gender issues as an integral part of a pragmatic research, extension and development work in agriculture,
  • Women play a vital role as agricultural producers and as agents of food and nutritional security.
  • Constraints impinging upon the ability of women to participate in collective action as members of agricultural cooperative or water user associations.
  • Results and outcomes of Gender inequalities i.e. less food being grown, less income being earned, and higher levels of poverty and food insecurity.
