Empowerment is central to women’s participation in agricultural research and to boost their role in agriculture and contribution to food security. In order to increase women’s empowerment it is important to understand the current level of their participation and the factors that influence their participation in the agricultural research process. This enables identification of entry points and design of effective strategies for women empowerment.
This poster presents the level of women farmers’ participation in five stages of the agricultural research process and implications for food security in Ethiopia. It was presented at the Third International Conference on Global Food Security held in Cape Town, South Africa in 3-6 Dec 2017.
