How to use this report:
This report is divided into four main sections:
Section 1 sets out the project rationale and provides an overview of the methodology applied during each phase of the project.

Section 2 investigates the challenges of engaging women smallholders in training opportunities and looks at how training can be designed systematically to meet their needs.

Section 3 considers contextual factors which affect women’s ability to apply training and it outlines strategies to ensure these factors are taken into account.

Both sections 2 and 3 draw together the findings from the literature review, review of practice and lessons from the fieldwork.

Section 4 presents conclusions and recommendations from the report.

To help the reader navigate to the section that is of most interest to them, there is a comprehensive contents page on page 6 and a glossary on page 71.
