The percentage of agricultural work carried out by women compared with the percentage of female extension staff in selected African countries

Year: 2008 Author: IAASTD/Ketill Berger, UNEP/GRID-Arendal
Description:
Only 15% of the world’s agricultural public sector extension agents are women [Global 3]. Women's access to extension is limited by lack of access to membership in rural organizations which often channel or provide training opportunities, and by gender blind agricultural policies that give inadequate attention to women farmer's needs in terms of crops and technology.
