Gender considerations are of utmost importance in agricultural technology development, dissemination and use, as these considerations confer an excellent dividend to the overall impact of technology adoption. Hence, the Technologies for African Agricultural Transformation (TAAT) Project consider gender as a critical component and demand that gender should be integrated through designing and implementing interventions.


Based on findings from the assessment led by AWRAD, this guide proposes two approaches for gender mainstreaming.

  1. The first one is gender mainstreaming in organizational processes. These include building good technical capacity, developing or reviewing gender policy, enabling corporate culture, promoting accountability and improving political will for gender integration in the whole work processes.


  1. The second strategy is mainstreaming gender in the whole project cycle. Gender should be integrated from identification, design, implementation and monitoring and evaluation of interventions and activities.

The guide also recommends key action areas TAAT partners and stakeholders should do if proper gender mainstreaming has to happen, women and men are equally benefited from the project interventions.
