STIA 350 - Gender, Env & Sustainability
This course will focus on the gendered perspectives of environmental sustainability and eco-efficient agriculture in order to reach food security and equitable access to resources. The course will present an overview of gender analysis to understand patterns of land use and conservation strategies, both individually and collectively and how male and female farmers contribute differently to conservation and agricultural production efforts. Students will be presented with real case studies from Africa, Asia and Latin America, documenting gender gaps in the access to a large range of agricultural resources, including land and farm labour, forest, livestock, extension services, and other assets. Current international trends and research streams on gender and agriculture will be discussed and analyzed with the aim to influence policy to reach lasting change.
