This presentation discusses the fieldwork and findings of a research-for-development project in the Philippines regarding gendered soil knowledge, access to resources, and agricultural practices. It identifies gender-based constraints and opportunities for the adoption of conservation agriculture production systems in a smallholder community in Northern Mindanao. This mixed methods approach includes focus group discussions, household interviews, and GPS mapping. Findings indicate that men and women have different soil knowledge that are linked to topography, gender roles, and access to resources. These gendered dimensions could have implications for the adoption of conservation agriculture production systems. This research also demonstrates the importance of combining geospatial techniques and participatory methods for gender research in a development context.
