Gender * Climate sourcebook (FAO, IFAD, WB) 

This Gender in Climate-Smart Agriculture module provides guidance and a comprehensive menu of practical tools for integrating gender in the planning, design, implementation, and evaluation of projects and investments in climate-smart agriculture (CSA). The module emphasizes the importance and ultimate goal of integrating gender in CSA practices, which is to reduce gender inequalities and ensure that men and women can equally benefit from any intervention in the agricultural sector to reduce risks linked to climate change. Climate change has an impact on food and nutrition security and agriculture, and the agriculture sector is one of the largest emitters of greenhouse gases. It is crucial to recognize that climate change affects men and women differently.  (98 pages with many cases).

Caravane des jeunes agripreneurs reportée

En raison de la mesure du gouvernement de suspendre pendant 3 mois les  activités des ONGs internationales, la caravane des jeunes qui était prévue du 15 au 19 octobre 2018 est reportée.  Les prochaines dates pour ce programme vous seront communiquées ultérieurement.

La caravane des jeunes est programme de promotion des jeunes agripreneurs qui s'inscrit dans le cadre de l'agro entrepreneuriat inclusif qui prend en compte l'inclusion du genre et des jeunes.

ce programme permet la mise en relation des acteurs et facilite les échanges sur les défis et les opportunités du secteur agricole.

Pendant  des jours, les caravaniers  visitent les entreprises agroalimentaires, les champs écoles des organisations agricoles et les institutions financières. Les derniers moments sont réservés aux échanges pour faciliter les connections et l'apprentissage.

Georges Djodji Akibode Nous sommes vraiment tristes d’apprndre cette nouvelle.Triste pour la jeunesse burundaise car cette caravane cadre parfaitement avec la stratégie  AgriProFocus a travers ses activites de promotion de l’agrobusiness au service du développement. Apres la caravane les jeunes ne disent plus « Je n'ai pas d'argent donc je ne peux pas entreprendre ». .Nous avons constate que beaucoup de jeunes pensent qu'il faut obligatoirement être riche pour pouvoir créer son entreprise. Ils se donnent ainsi une « bonne raison » pour ne jamais avoir à se lancer dans  l'entrepreneuriat 

1 week 6 days ago

Joseph Nsabiyabandi Bonjour Georges! Oui, l'ajournement  de la caravane des jeunes  attristent  plus d'un. Nous espérons que la situation va se décanter d'ici peu pour pouvoir redémarrer à nouveau. Nous sommes au service du peuple, les embûches qui sont posées  devant nous sont en réalité posées devant le petit peuple bénéficiaire de nos programmes.

What measure would you take to bring about inclusive development in Africa if you were a minister?

Imagine you are the minister of Foreign trade and international cooperation of the Netherlands for one day, and you can decide on one measure to bring about inclusive development in Africa. What would be your proposal? Many countries in Africa experienced high economic growth in past decades. But many African people don’t profit from this growth. Poverty rates remain high, benefits are not equally distributed and large groups in society are excluded. How do you make sure that vulnerable and poor parts of the population, especially women and youth, profit from economic development as well? What policies will you design for economic transformation, to create more jobs, and bring about social protection? Do you choose for a particular sector, or a totally different approach?

Send your practical and original answer, in 175 words maximum, and before Friday the 5th of October, to Joris Tielens (

FAO: Gender gaps in African agriculture are holding back progress

Gender gaps in agriculture in Africa are holding back progress towards ending hunger and must be urgently addressed, according to the UN Food and Agriculture Organisation's director-general José Graziano da Silva. He said this at a joint event with the African Union (AU) on the margins of the UN General Assembly. “We need to better recognize and harness the fundamental contribution of women to food security and nutrition. For that, we must close persisting gender gaps in agriculture in Africa,” Graziano da Silva said.

The director-general called for better representation of women in governance mechanisms and decision-making processes, as well as adequate and equal access to land, financial resources, social protection programmes, services and opportunities for women in rural areas.
