Communicating Gender for Rural Development

This document is designed to promote the introduction of a gender perspective into communication for development initiatives in rural areas, and suggests practical ways of going about this. It consists of two parts. The first focuses on key concepts and guidelines relating to gender on the one hand and communication for development on the other, as well as on the synergy between gender and communication for development. The second part focuses on the various stages of a communication initiative, ‚Äúrevisiting” them from a gender perspective. ‚ÄúCommunicating Gender for Rural Development” intends to develop reflexes and elicit questions with a view to ensuring that communication for development in rural areas is more inclusive of men and women, while respecting their specificities, needs and capacities, all with the ultimate goal of promoting equality.
