    From the outset, the development of agriculture has been strongly associated with women’s endeavour. In fact, women’s contribution to agriculture goes back to the origins of farming and the domestication of animals when the first human settlements were established more than 6 000 years ago. Over the years, the division of responsibilities and labour within households and communities tended to place farming and nutrition-related tasks under women’s domain. Nowadays, in many societies women continue to be mainly responsible for family food security and nutrition.

    Le présent guide intitulé « Accès à l’espace rural et administration des terres après des conflits violents » a été élaboré pour aider les spécialistes concernés à remettre sur pied les régimes fonciers et l’administration foncière dans les pays émergeant de conflits violents. Il est particulièrement difficile, dans de telles situations, d’assurer un accès sans danger à la terre. Les conflits violents entraînent généralement le déplacement d’une grande partie de la population. À l’issue du conflit, certains de ceux qui regagnent leur foyer trouvent leur bien occupé par d’autres.

    Desde sus orígenes, el desarrollo de la agricultura ha estado estrechamente ligado al trabajo de la mujer. Su contribución a la agricultura se remonta a más de 6 000 años, cuando se inició la domesticación de animales y plantas en los primeros asentamientos humanos. Con el paso del tiempo, con la división del trabajo y de responsabilidades tanto en el seno de la unidad familiar como en la comunidad, se asignaron a las mujeres las tareas y responsabilidades vinculadas a las actividades agrícolas y nutricionales.
