Gender and conservation agriculture: Constraints and opportunities in the Philippines
This research addresses the gender-based constraints and opportunities in the Philippines for conservation agriculture productions systems (CAPS) with smallholder farmers. Men and women have different access to assets including land, information, and livelihood opportunities which can impact CAPS adoption. Men and women also have a gendered division of labor which needs to be taken into consideration when introducing CAPS to stakeholders. This paper also discusses how CAPS activities could influence gender relations in this site if farmers were to adopt the practice. It provides recommendations for increasing the likelihood of adoption as well as gender equity.
