Closing the gender gap for development

Evidence from an extensive body of social and economic research surveyed in this report confirms the contributions women make to the agriculture sector and rural enterprises, the gender-specific constraints they face in accessing resources and opportunities, the potential benefits for the sector and society that could be achieved by reducing those constraints, and lessons learned from policies, programmes and interventions aimed at closing the gender gap in agriculture. The conclusions are clear: (i) gender equality is good for agriculture, food security and society; and (ii) governments, civil society, the private sector and individuals, working together, can support gender equality in agriculture and rural areas.
