The international 'gender agenda' in the context of the South Pacific and agricultural livelihoods

Carnegie, Michelle and Singh-Peterson, Lila ORCID: (2020) The international 'gender agenda' in the context of the South Pacific and agricultural livelihoods. In: Integrating Gender in Agricultural Development: Learnings from South Pacific Contexts. Emerald Group Publishing Limited, London, United Kingdom, pp. 33-55. ISBN 9781789730562


This chapter situates the South Pacific region's engagement in progressing gender equality and women's empowerment within broader gender and development (GAD) debates. It explores the international 'gender agenda' and how its associated frameworks, platforms, policies and metrics have diffused throughout the South Pacific. Limited progress in achieving gender equality and empowerment goals has been made, globally and regionally, with considerable challenges yet to be overcome. Complementing the book's focus on the integration of gender into agricultural research and development projects, the chapter reviews rural women's access to income and land in the South Pacific, and their contributions to agricultural production and marketing.
