There are gender disparities in agriculture which consequently affect the achievement of national agricultural development goals. To achieve greater development impact, there is need to start thinking about gender early on in the development process—at the research or needs assessment stage. Through its emphasis on high quality field-based research, the AgShare approach provides a platform through which gender can be integrated in Africa’s agricultural research and development curriculum. This document provides guidelines for integrating a gender perspective into the different components of the AgShare methodology. It is intended for use by Agshare management, researchers (faculty and graduate students), and all others involved in the implementation of the AgShare methodology.
