|Title:||Women, livestock ownership and markets: bridging the gender gap in Eastern and Southern Africa|
Sanginga, Pascal C.
|City of publisher:||London|
|Abstract:||This book provides empirical evidence from Kenya, Tanzania and Mozambique, and from different production systems, of the importance of livestock as an asset to women and their participation in livestock production and livestock product markets. It explores issues of intra-household income management and economic benefits of livestock markets to women, focusing on how types of markets, types of products and women's participation in markets influence their access to livestock income. The book further analyses the role of livestock ownership, especially women's ownership, in influencing household food security through increasing household dietary diversity and food adequacy. Additional issues addressed include access to resources, information and financial services to enable women more effectively to participate in livestock production and marketing. Contributions by Juliet Kariuki, Samuel Mburu, Beth Miller, Bagalwa Nabintu Sanginga, Jemimah Njuki, Paula Pimentel, Pascal Sanginga, and Elizabeth Waithanji. [ASC Leiden abstract]|
