Survey Results Report: Gender and Climate-Smart Agriculture

REPORT SERIES Nr. 3 | JANUARY 2015 Authors: Leisa Perch (RIO+ Centre), Rosaly Byrd (RIO+ Centre Consultant) Between August 1st and September 16th 2014, the RIO+ Centre in collaboration with FANRPAN, conducted an online survey on Gender and CSA, primarily targeting stakeholders in five different groups (farmers, policymakers, civil society organizations, private/sector media and communication/Theatre for Policy Advocacy) in five focus countries (Lesotho, Mozambique, Swaziland, Zambia and Zimbabwe). Stakeholders were sourced from participants of FANRPAN Dialogues and meetings, validation meeting relating to the draft scoping reports, an e-discussion hosted in 2013 on CSA as well as other actors identified as active in CSA research, policy or practice. A pool of almost three hundred potential respondents to the survey was generated. By the time the survey was closed on September 16th, participants from the five focus countries plus respondents from an additional 8 countries had responded to the survey, including Cameroon, the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), Finland, Kenya, Malawi, South Africa, Uganda and Tanzania. A total of 105 people participated. The survey served to help to answer the three key questions of the Assessment. In particular, the Survey specifically targeted Institutional and Governance Space and the Policy Space elements of our inquiry (see more in the Background Paper Publication). This report outlines, in detail, the Survey, the methodology and an overview of its initial findings.
