In response to the persistent inequalities of women in farming despite decades of development assistance, Team Agriculture, Forestry and Food Security at Sida Headquarters (Sweden) initiated a thematic evaluation of how gender issues are tackled in Sida-supported agricultural programs.

The purpose of this evaluation was to increase understanding of how Sida’s development assistance in agriculture should be designed, implemented, and funded to ensure that female farmers are reached, that their needs as producers are met, and that they are able to benefit from the support to achieve a positive impact on their livelihoods. The Zambia Country Study, which focuses on the Agriculture Support Program (ASP) forms part of a five-country study.

Sida is a government agency working on behalf of the Swedish parliament and government, with the mission to reduce poverty in the world.
