Local soil knowledge and gendered landscapes in Bolivia and the Philippines: Can GIS tell their story?
MetadataShow full item record
This research will pose questions about using mixed methods for research on gender, local soil knowledge, and agricultural resources. It presents qualitative GIS methods used in sample households in the Bolivian Andes to discuss its cross-cultural applicability for future fieldwork in the Philippines. It will be part of the Gender Cross-Cutting Research Activity of SANREM CRSP in collaboration with a research-for-development organization in Claveria, Misamis Oriental, Mindanao. The goal is to combine qualitative methods with geospatial techniques to identify and document gendered knowledge, agricultural practices, and access to resources in order to better understand the relationship between gender, agriculture, and landscape. By incorporating multiple methods we hope to identify gender based constraints and opportunities at the household level that are relevant to conservation agriculture production systems (CAPS).
