Gender-aware rural advisory services can help close the gender gap in agriculture by making information, new technologies, skills and knowledge more relevant and accessible to both women and men farmers, with positive effects on household incomes, food security and nutrition. The Gender and Rural Advisory Services Assessment Tool (GRAST) is designed to support providers of rural advisory services in their efforts to develop gender-sensitive programmes. By undertaking a gender assessment of rural advisory services at policy, organizational and individual levels, the GRAST provides entry points for improving the gender-responsiveness of the design and delivery of advisory services in a truly transformative manner. Its ultimate objective is to ensure that rural advisory services respond to the needs and priorities of both rural women and men and that, as a consequence, they can equally access and benefit from these services. 96 pp.

This brochure presents FAO’s sustained and consistent work towards gender equality and the empowerment of rural women, which are at the core of the Organization’s efforts to end hunger, malnutrition and rural poverty. It provides examples of FAO’s work in agriculture, forestry, fisheries and other sectors in promoting gender equality and women’s empowerment, and shows that enabling rural women to have the same access as men to resources, services and opportunities, translates into economic and social gains for families, communities and nations at large. It also shows how FAO is contributing to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and is fully committed to “leave no one behind”. 13 pp.
