Women who farm on a small-scale are pushing for a fairer deal. How can we remedy the gender disparities that exist in the agricultural sector?

In commemoration of the International Women Day 2023, small-scale farmers especially women in Uganda are saying that it is possible to enhance crop yields by as much as 30 percent by providing women farmers with the same access to productive resources like land, technologies, and capital as males in order to help feed a growing population.

The Policy Brief answers the questions "How can we remedy the gender disparities that exist in the agricultural sector?". It also shares What ESAFF Uganda has done to remedy the gender disparities that exist in the agricultural sector.
