The framework of the study is represented, on the one hand, by the scientific assessment of climate change, with its impacts and associated effects on human and natural systems, and, on the other hand, by the international response to this challenge.

Skills development is a key to improve rural productivity, employability and income-earning opportunities, enhancing food security and promoting environmentally sustainable rural development and livelihoods. Despite rural women’s major role in agriculture and other rural activities, higher barriers in education and training limit their opportunities and capacities to engage in more productive and remunerative work, perform managerial and leadership roles and participate fully in the development of their communities, and demand targeted action to dismantle them. This paper targets national authorities concerned with ensuring food safety and quality, stakeholders and groups or associations that influence national policy. This paper provide advice on strategies to strengthen rural girls’ and women’s opportunities for education and training.

This Guide is written for the people who are involved in the planning, design and implementation of irrigation programmes. It is therefore intended for irrigation engineers, members of multidisciplinary identification and formulation missions, staff of rural development projects, government employees, staff of NGOs, and engineering and consulting firms. This document is a guide to the integration of socio-economic and gender issues in the sub-sector irrigation. The Guide has been developed in the context of the FAO Socioeconomic and Gender Analysis (SEAGA) Programme. SEAGA is an approach to development based on an analysis of socio-economic patterns and participatory identification of women and men’s priorities. The objective of this approach is to close the gaps between what people need and what development delivers. By placing socioeconomic analysis and gender analysis together, SEAGA helps us learn about community dynamics, including the linkages among social, economic and environmental patterns. The purpose of the SEAGA Sector Guide on Irrigation is to support gender-responsive participatory planning of irrigation schemes, and to integrate socio-economic and gender issues in the planning process. The ultimate aim is to improve irrigation scheme performance while strengthening the position of rural women and disadvantaged groups.
