Compendium on emerging gender issues with regard to food, land, and water

The crucial role of gender in determining people’s access to resources such as land, water, and food is widely acknowledged in the development community. But how to address the dynamics of gendered social realities in transcultural contexts is often unclear. This compendium, developed by a group led by Dr. Sabin Bieri of the Interdisciplinary Centre for Gender Studies, University of Bern, comprises three glossaries on gender issues in development contexts. It defines and illuminates numerous key terms and issues relevant to gender and sustainable development, especially in rural settings – terms such as care burden, feminization of agriculture, gender roles, women’s groups, traditional value chain, etc.

Each glossary provides concise, targeted information as well as case studies and policy recommendations.
