    • Why Gender and Market Oriented Agriculture
      African Agriculture is commercializing at a fast rate mainly due opening up of regional and export markets and a drive at national level to make agriculture a viable business especially for smallholder
      Growth of domestic, regional and export markets especially for “traditional food crops”
      A variety of marketing models being applied=farmer co-operatives, contract schemes, participatory market approaches
      There are gender issues and consequences around this commercialization
    • Why is Gender crucial in agriculture development?
      An issue of growth and Equity!
      Relates to agricultural productivity, food security, nutrition, poverty reduction, and empowerment.
      In all of these cases, women play a critical but often under-recognized role and face greater constraints than men.
      There is evidence that increasing access to resources by women as important implications for economic growth and poverty reduction
      Alderman, Haddad, and Udry (1996) estimated that reducing inequalities in human capital, physical capital, and current inputs between men and women farmers in Sub-Saharan Africa has the potential to increase agricultural productivity by 10–20 percent
      The 2009 Global Hunger Index (GHI) is highly correlated with gender inequality— that is, countries that exhibit high levels of global hunger are also those with a high degree of gender inequality (von Grebmer et al. 2009).
      In most countries, women are half of the population!
