Critical Gender Issues with Regard to Food, Land, and Water: A Compendium for Policy-makers, NGOs, and Researchers

Critical Gender Issues with Regard to Food, Land, and Water: A Compendium for Policy-makers, NGOs, and Researchers

NCCR North-South Dialogue No. 40

by Kristina Lanz, Sabin Bieri, Lilian Fankhauser
Bern, NCCR North-South 2012

This document is divided into three glossaries concerning land, food, and water. Each glossary provides short and precise information on subjects which are of relevance to researchers, policy-makers, and development practitioners working in these three fields. Issues such as food security, land rights and land grabs, climate change, and water and sanitation are taken up and elucidated from a gender perspective. In each glossary, case studies help to highlight important issues. Furthermore, policy recommendations aimed at different stakeholders are provided at the end of each glossary. The individual glossaries aim to provide brief, up-to-date information that can serve as entry points for professionals in the development community. For more in-depth and detailed information, users may refer to the three structured bibliographies at the end of the document.
