This module will provide basic guidelines to extension agents on how to help farmers form strong organisations that are able to effectively provide services to their members. Specifically, the module will discuss the definition of a farmer organisation (FO) and how different formations of farmers play different roles in the agricultural sector. Various factors influence the successful operation of FOs and this module will discuss several of these internal and external challenges, as well as suggestions on how to address them. This module will also look at issues that affect the sustainability of FOs and will help you as an extension agent guide farmers in forming and managing sustainable organisations. Lastly, the module will discuss the most important functions that FOs fulfil in the agricultural sector.

 Afin de mener à bien leurs mandats et de contribuer à des changements positifs, les vulgarisateurs ont besoin des connaissances et des compétences requises pour aborder les questions cruciales ayant trait au genre dans les moyens de subsistance ruraux. Les femmes et les hommes, jeunes et âgés, jouent tous des rôles essentiels dans les moyens de subsistance ruraux, mais des  suppositions sont souvent faites sur qui fait quoi et qui prend les décisions. Ces aspects détaillés du genre et de la prise de décisions sont cruciaux pour cibler les efforts et aider toutes les personnes concernées par les moyens de subsistance ruraux et l’agriculture à profiter des innovations et des technologies améliorées.

Ce module sur le genre est conçu pour vous aider à comprendre pourquoi ces concepts sont importants dans le cadre de la vulgarisation. Vous apprendrez à identifier pourquoi différents membres de la communauté ont des besoins différents sur le plan de la vulgarisation, et la manière dont vous pouvez commencer à les aborder. Une fois que vous comprendrez ces différents besoins, vous pourrez mieux relier les technologies et les opportunités, mettre en oeuvre des programmes fructueux, et éviter d’empirer la situation de qui que ce soit. Ce module vous aidera aussi à vous améliorer dans votre (ou vos) rôle(s) en matière de vulgarisation afin de mieux satisfaire les besoins cruciaux dans le cadre des moyens de subsistance

ruraux.

In order to deliver on their mandates and contribute to positive change, extensionists need a well developed understanding of, and the skills necessary to address critical issues around gender in rural livelihoods. Men and women, young and old, all play vital roles in rural livelihoods, but assumptions are often made about who does what and who makes the decisions. These details of gender and decision making are critical to targeting efforts and helping everyone involved in rural livelihoods and agriculture benefit from innovations and improved technologies. 

This module on gender is designed to help you understand why these concepts are important in extension. You will learn how to identify why different community members have different needs from extension, and how you can begin addressing them. By understanding these different needs, you will be able to better match the best technologies to opportunities, deliver successful programmes, and avoid making anyone’s situation worse. This module will also help you improve in your role(s) in extension to better meet critical needs in rural livelihoods.
