Gender in Agriculture
17-Module E-Learning Course
In 2008 the Gender in Agriculture (GiA) Sourcebook was published as a result of fruitful partnership of the World Bank, FAO and IFAD.
In a joint collaboration with Michigan State University, we have transformed the GiA Sourcebook into an E-Learning course. The course is freely accessible to all interested in gender-related topics in the field of agriculture and rural development. The course provides for an opportunity to learn about gender in agriculture in an interactive and enjoyable way.
What is it about? Like the GiA Sourcebook, this online course provides answers across different sub-sectors to the question how will the development outcome of my intervention improve if I mainstream gender?
The course is composed of 17 Modules ranging from primary production to natural resource management and access to markets and services. The time required to complete each module ranges from 45 minutes to 1.5 hours. Each module is an independent product, so each learner can select the ones that are of most interest to him or her. Each module includes interactive elements, videos and an assessment tool.
Why is it important? This course is intended to serve as an innovative learning tool to help agriculture specialists, practitioners and the academic community to learn on how to use a gender lens effectively in their work, which will lead to improved development outcomes and impact.
