Overview

Two main topics constitute this volume. The first concerns general issues and themes on women and development (WID). The second involves the results of the Women in Argricultural Development Project (WIADP), a project designed and directed by the author in the 1980s. The author examines the results of the project, which include data sets, specific research findings, and policy changes in Malawi. The book deals with issues affecting both men and women farmers in the smallholder sector. It looks at activities that female and male government workers in the agricultural sector performed in order to raise general awareness of women's agricultural work and to provide agricultural services to smallholder farmers, particular women. This volume also touches on several of the author's experiences after WIADP, including serving as director for the Food and Agriculture Organization, (FAO)'s global program on women in agriculture; creating and supervising a training program on Gender Analysis; and supervising a portfolio of WID projects in Africa, Asia, Latin America, the Caribbean, and Near East.
