The Gender in Agriculture from Policy to Practice (GAPP) Toolkit presents an innovative approach for engaging men and women to increase women’s access to productive resources. It was prepared by Lutheran World Relief and Cultural Practice, LLC in July 2016.
From the Toolkit:
Between 2013 and 2016, Lutheran World Relief in collaboration with ASONOG and LWR implemented the Gender in Agriculture from Policy to Practice (GAPP) project in western Honduras. Funded by USAID, the project piloted a new methodology that integrates a women’s leadership approach with masculinity approaches to advocate for policies that increase women’s access to resources for agricultural production.
This Toolkit tells the story of the GAPP project. It describes the context, the actors, the main activities, and the successes and challenges encountered over the course of the project. It relates the collective learnings about this new approach gathered from the GAPP partners with the hope that it provides useful information for practitioners interested in replicating a similar process in other places. The Toolkit details the main components of the approach, provides useful material used during the implementation of GAPP, and provides reflections from the implementing organizations.
