Tina Beuchelt highlighted the need for gender-responsive research and implementation as women play a crucial role in land management and food production, but often lack equal access to resources, decision-making power and opportunities. She presented the ongoing research around three hypotheses:

  • Gender-based violence in households and communities reduces or inhibits the adoption of more sustainable agricultural practices.
  • Current land tenure arrangements discriminate against women within smallholder families and prevent sustainable agriculture practices.
  • Climate change and resource degradation lead to more gender-based violence within communities.
