The Food and Agriculture Organization FAO and the International Fund of Agricultural Development (IFAD) launched in May 2009 a two-year global programme to promote gender equality through capacity-building and knowledge management. The overall goal of the programme is to contribute to rural poverty reduction through gender equality and women's empowerment, thus improving the effectiveness of operations supported by IFAD and its partners.
Land is a crucial resource for poverty reduction, food security and rural development. However, men and women do not always enjoy the same rights to land. In this context, the PROCASUR Corporation, in collaboration with the International Land Coalition, the International Fund of Agricultural Development (IFAD) and Uganda Land Alliance organized a Learning Route (LR) initiative on Action-oriented research and policy influence for women access to land in Africa.
It is established that women play a big role toward the development of farming and as they are the ones left to till land when their spouses leave to work in the towns.
