Why a Certificate in Women in
Development? '


As demonstrated by research,
publications, conferences/seminars, and
institutional participation the field of
Women in Development (WID) continues

in the analysis of development processes
at .both the micro and macro levels.
Today, government and non-government
institutions engaged in development are
paying increasing attention to the role of
women for reasons of equity and
efficiency.

During the past twd .decades, WID
scholarship has advanced from a primarily.
descriptive to an analytical focus: it has
Undergone increasing sophistication in.
terms of theory, analysis, and application.

of academic disciplines, including
Agronomy, Anthropology,, Food&
Resource Economics, Home Economics,
.Forestry, Geography, Women's Studies
and others. The WID Certificate offers
