Westlands, Nairobi, Kenya

Event: Gender Approaches to Agricultural Extension Practices Course

Venue: Indepth Research Services, Nairobi, Kenya.

Event Date: 12th - 16th March 2018.




Gender sensitivity in agricultural practices and extension is an important area that affects people of all walks of life. It entails gender equity, gender roles and further implies that roles should not be ascribed for instance to the females alone, or the males exclusively as this will amount to set back to the progress of agriculture. Gender equality refers to equal rights, responsibilities, and opportunities for women and men, girls and boys. It is the absence of discrimination on the basis of a person’s sex in opportunities, in the allocation of resources and benefits, or in access to services such as agricultural advice. It implies that the interests, needs, and priorities of both women and men are taken into consideration, recognizing the diversity among different groups of women and men.

This training highlights such gender-related issues and presents strategies for meeting them. We explore various ways of delivery of agricultural extension services in a way that improves gender-equitable service provision.


This course is intended for various actors in the Agriculture Extension (Agricultural extension officers, senior agricultural officials and policymakers) working with communities, in governments, funding agencies, Research organizations and non-government organizations among others for Agriculture support activities and other Development programmes.


5 Days


By the end of the course, learners will be able to:

  • Develop programmes, centered on women's needs and constraints, in accomplishing their tasks
  • Raising awareness of gender issues as an integral part of a pragmatic research, extension and development work in agriculture,
  • Analysis of Roles women play in agricultural development
  • Women play a vital role as agricultural producers and as agents of food and nutritional security.
  • Access to productive assets such as land and services, finance and extension.
  • Constraints impinging upon the ability of women to participate in the collective action as members of agricultural cooperative or water user associations.
  • Issues of women tend to lack a political voice.
  • Results and outcomes of Gender inequalities i.e. less food being grown, less income being earned, and higher levels of poverty and food insecurity.
  • Agriculture in low-income developing countries is a sector with exceptionally high impact in terms of its potential to reduce poverty. Yet for agricultural growth to fulfil this potential, gender disparities must be addressed and effectively reduced.
