WIA


at the University of Florida


Conference on
GENDER ISSUES IN FARMING SYSTEMS
RESEARCH AND EXTENSION


February 26-March 1, 1986 0 University of Florida a Gainesville, Florida


Sponsored by

The Center for Tropical Agriculture








THE WOMEN IN AGRICULTURE PROGRAM


The purpose of the Women in Agriculture (WIA) Program is to promote
an understanding of gender and its effects on agriculture in a variety of
contexts. The aim of the Program is to support and to develop faculty and
student expertise related to the roles of women and intra-household dynamics
in agricultural production, research, and extension. The Program is based
on the recognition that women are critical to agricultural production in
many places. Access to resources and research technologies may be constrained
by gender and may lead to detrimental effects on the development and implemen-
tation of sound agricultural programs. It is important to understand these
constraints and how they vary by region and by country in order to design
and to implement agricultural programs that are equitable to participants
and that yield appropriate returns to the resources invested.

Program activities are designed to build on the interest and experience
of a broad, interdisciplinary constituency of faculty and of students concerned
with these topics in both international and domestic contexts. The WIA Program
activities include: providing a seminar series of relevant speakers; strength-
ening on-campus courses; preparing a bibliography on gender issues and agricul-
ture; and developing faculty and student awareness and expertise.
