PROMISING APPROACHES TO TRANSFORMING GENDER RELATIONS IN AGRICULTURE [Abstract ID: 1103-03]
Purposive sampling along with snowballing was used to identify 44 stakeholders working in gender and agriculture and semi-structured interviews were used. This session presents the seven most promising methodologies identified by stakeholders along with best practice mainstreaming. We define what mainstreaming looks like from the practice and then rank each stakeholder accordingly. Despite clear gender mainstreaming definitions and guidelines many stakeholders were confused about mainstreaming (seeing it as something done in projects rather than organizations). We map the differences and similarities in the approaches taken by various stakeholders: (I)NGOs, donors, government, research institutes, cooperatives, private sector - to incorporate and/or mainstream gender throughout their agricultural programs, as well as some of the challenges facing those working on gender in the agriculture sector.
