New book: Agriculture, Diversification, and Gender in Rural Africa

Researchers from DEGRP agriculture project Gender and pro-poor agricultural growth: non-farm/farm linkages and village dynamics in sub-Saharan Africa have just published an open access book Agriculture, Diversification, and Gender in Rural Africa. 

Based on findings from longitudinal research in 6 African countries - Ghana, Kenya, Malawi, Tanzania, Zambia and Mozambique - the book explores how smallholder farmers' livelihoods have changed over time, with a special focus on how changes have affected male- and female-headed households differently.
