Integrating gender in agricultural development initiatives across the South Pacific: customs, values and intersections

Singh-Peterson, Lila ORCID: and Carnegie, Michelle (2020) Integrating gender in agricultural development initiatives across the South Pacific: customs, values and intersections. In: Integrating Gender in Agricultural Development: Learnings from South Pacific Contexts. Emerald Group Publishing Limited, London, United Kingdom, pp. 1-12. ISBN 978-1-78973-056-2


We outline the ways in which agriculture continues to underpin South Pacific economies and livelihoods; discuss gender mainstreaming/integration in agricultural development activities and debates that define its theory and practice; and highlight how the concepts of custom and intersectionality are important considerations in this field. The final part of the chapter provides an overview of the book structure which includes two introductory and contextualising chapters, six case study chapters, and a synthesis chapter of the key learnings, commonalities and challenges identified across the six case studies.
