CTA Publishing: International Women's Day No. 52 March 2016

International Women's Day

No. 52
March 2016

-

Evidence shows that women’s empowerment is a critical catalyst in agricultural and rural development. To celebrate International Women's Day, CTA is placing the spotlight on six women who are making a difference in ACP countries. Discover their stories, for example the story of Rose Kamanga, who - in response to difficulties caused by drought, erratic rainfall and warmer temperatures - has embarked on a programme to introduce climate-smart practices to her farm.
