Training Manual.


The overall purpose of this Trainers Manual is to support trainers (agricultural extension workers and community development officers) to effectively engage women and men smallholder farmers in gender-responsive and transformative climate smart agriculture (CSA) interventions. In particular, the manual aims to provide users with appropriate knowledge and practical skills (methods, techniques, and materials) to facilitate smallholder farmers to challenge the existing negative social and gender norms that undermine women’s empowerment and resilience to agricultural shocks. This will encourage smallholder women farmers uptake of gender-responsive and transformative Climate Smart Agricultural (CSA) practices and technologies to mitigate agricultural shocks for increased agricultural productivity, and business options to promote income diversification. The manual has been informed by the findings of the baseline study conducted by the “Women Resilience” project in Isingiro and Alebtong districts from February to April 2022 (Muhanguzi et al., 2022).
