(12 September 2014) – Odile Plan, a member of AEIDL, coordinated the production and participated in the writing of the latest issue of POUR (n°. 222, July 2014), “L’agriculture familiale à travers le prisme du genre” (Family farming from a gender perspective).
There is not one but many different types of “family farming”, which vary according to geographical, economic, cultural and social contexts. This issue of POUR tries to assess these through observations of the situation in developed and underdeveloped countries.
The publication highlights in particular the need to emphasise social inclusion and gender issues to ensure the sustainability of family farms.
It was designed and produced with an approach linking gender and development. In all the initiatives presented, it highlights the social relations between women and men, and place them in the context of development that is equitable and sustainable.
