Abstract:In order to fill some of the gaps in natural resource management and gender research, and to promote more inclusive and gender-sensitive research in key research centres across Africa, the Organisation for Social Science Research in Eastern and Southern Africa (OSSREA), with funding from the International Development Research Council (IDRC), has been supporting six research teams carrying out comprehensive gender and social analyses within already existing research programmes. An introduction by the editors is followed by chapters on the six research programmes: Promotion of participatory technology in potato farming - Ethiopia (Girma Abera Jibat, Mathewos Belisa, and Hailu Gudeta); Evaluation of the gender and social perspectives in choice and profitability of soil fertility management technologies for smallholder maize production in Kenya (J.M. Macharia, S.K. Kimani, Lydia N. Kimenye, and Joshua J. Ramisch); Access, control and use of natural resources in southern Malawi: a gender analysis (Chimwemwe Mawaya and Meya P. Kalindekafe); Gender analysis of risks from exposure to chemical contaminants among Kirinya wetland resources users in Jinja District of Uganda (I. Naigaga, M. Kyangwa, and R. Mugidde); Gender issues in fish farming in the Lake Victoria Basin: with a focus on development and dissemination of wetland 'clariid' fishes breeding technologies (Justus Rutaisire, Consolata Kabonesa, John K. Okechi and Pricilla N. Boera); Southern African programme for improved transboundary NRM: equitable access and benefit sharing (Nyasha Chishakwe, Nicholas Tandi, and Stella Musiiwa). A final chapter offers conclusions and recommendations. [ASC Leiden abstract]
