Compendium of good practices

The ‘Compendium of 15 good practices’, published by the JP GTA in 2020, showcases successful gender transformative approaches across different settings. It outlines good practices and experiences that contribute to positive gender-related transformational changes towards food security, improved nutrition and sustainable agriculture.

The Compendium provides guidance on how to apply gender transformative approaches in any institution working in agriculture and rural areas. The contributions come from a wide range of organizations that are active practitioners of these approaches in agriculture and rural development.

The gender transformative approaches presented in the Compendium can be implemented at various levels – individual, family/household, group/community and institutional – in partnership with non-governmental organizations, local civil society organizations and/or local and district governments.
