Leveling the Field: Improving Opportunities for Women Farmers in Africa

This report presents new data measuring the gender gap in various aspects of agriculture in Africa. A particular focus on six countries— Ethiopia, Malawi, Niger, Nigeria, Tanzania and Uganda—provides detailed analysis of the factors that account for this gap. The authors then lay out a ten-point policy agenda that African policy-makers, donors, and development organizations could undertake to narrow the gender gap.
