Policymakers, investors and development programme managers need tools to detect when interventions may result in increasing the marginalisation of youth and women and to mitigate negative effects and enhance the positive effects of adapting their interventions appropriately.
To help increase the capacity of decision makers in Ghana and Malawi to analyse potential inequities and identify strategies to address them, the Tools for equity in SAI project is working towards developing:
- A guide to help implementers know under what circumstances existing tools may best be employed.
- Tools will be adapted to local contexts through participatory action research.
- Case studies of an active gender transformative approach will be used to give insight into lived experiences and the influence of sustainable agricultural intensification (SAI) on gender and youth.
