Enabling Voices, Demanding Rights: A guide to gender-sensitive community engagement in large-scale land-based investment in agriculture
This joint IISD-Oxfam guide was designed in response to the long-standing challenges that women have faced as a result of large-scale land-based investments in the agricultural sector.
It sets out different "entry points" for communities to get involved in the decisions around such investments, with these "entry points" linked to different stages in that process. It clarifies how the guide can be used and what contexts might be appropriate. The guide is also informed by consultations undertaken in various countries regarding community engagement efforts.
