The report provides a unique quantification of the costs in terms of lost growth opportunities and an estimate of what societies, economies, and communities would gain if the gender gap in agriculture is addressed. The findings of this report are striking, and send a strong signal to policy makers in Africa as well as development partners that closing the gender gap is smart economics. Consider this: closing the gender gap in agricultural productivity could potentially lift as many as 238,000 people out of poverty in Malawi, 80,000 people in Tanzania, and 119,000 people in Uganda.
This report is a terminal evaluation of a UNEP-GEF project implemented between 2012 and 2014.The overall objective of the project was to promote and support the broader adoption and more effective use of landscape-level sustainable land management (L-SLM) as an integrated approach to managing agricultural landscapes that addresses the full set of needs from the rural land base-including sustainable, climate-resilient production of food and fibre (from agriculture, forestry, and fisheries), watershed management, biodiversity conservation, bio-energy, terrestrial climate mitigation, and rura
This is a terminal evaluation of a UNEP project implemented between 2008 and 2010. The project's objective was to strengthen capacity in southern and eastern Africa to produce and interpret indicators of biodiversity and ecosystem services in support of national policies, including PRSPs and international reporting for the MDG-7 on environmental sustainability and the 2010 biodiversity target. The evaluation set out to examine the impacts of the BICSA project, including the likelihood of future impacts.
