This report explores evidence of how the Community-driven development (CDD) approach can create and enhance participation and decision making when women, as well as men, are to be included in the “community” voice and choice. It reviews the theoretical and empirical literature and analyzes World Bank–supported CDD projects. Its intent is to help practitioners who implement CDD interventions more explicitly define, discuss, and integrate gender-relevant elements in the design of CDD projects; be more effective in implementing and monitoring features that may affect men and women differently;...
This paper demonstrates the relevance of gender in responses to climate change in the mountainous province of Yunnan in southwest China. Based on surveys undertaken during a record-breaking drought, the paper explores how women and men in a village in Baoshan Prefecture differ in their perceptions of and responses to drought, and how the changing roles of women and men in the home and the community are influencing water management at the village level. Our results show that despite the increasingly active role of women in managing water during the drought, they are excluded from community-...
This brief draws on ongoing research being carried out by CIFOR on gender and oil palm in Indonesia, and on collaboration between Oxfam and the RSPO Human Rights Working Group and the RSPO smallholder working group, to evaluate and recommend actions for enhancing the gender responsiveness of the RSPO and its social auditing mechanism. The findings of this Oxfam-commissioned study are useful for further refining the design of the RSPO certification and auditing mechanisms and implementation of P&C and accompanying guidance, as well as those of the ISPO and future (certification)...
The FAO report sheds some light on the nature of the challenges that agriculture and food systems are facing now and throughout the 21st century, and provides some insights as to what is at stake and what needs to be done. What emerges is that “business as usual” is no longer an option but calls for major transformations in agricultural systems, in rural economies and in how we manage our natural resources. The report was undertaken for the quadrennial review of the FAO Strategic Framework and in preparation for the Organization’s Medium-Term Plan 2018-2021. Source: FAO  
The People’s Coalition on Food Sovereignty (PCFS) and partner organizations documented cases of women in communities in the Philippines and Kenya about their experiences and perspectives. PCFS met with women from three different communities and interviewed them on their perspectives, experiences and struggles. PCFS also recorded how the women from these communities organized themselves to address the most pressing issues in their communities. PCFS has produced a multi-media documentation of women’s voices from grassroots communities to allow for wider dissemination of their knowledge and...
Women and girls in Mozambique are struggling more than ever to cope with the current drought, the worst in 35 years, aggravated by a particularly powerful El Niño phenomenon, according to this CARE study. Up to 80 percent of the families are forced to reduce their meals to only one or two daily rations. Tens of thousands of children are expected to be acutely malnourished. The situation is particularly hard for teenage girls who lack the experience and knowledge to come up with strategies to protect themselves and their children from hunger. The CARE study also shows that those communities...
