    Africa

    Over the last two decades, 200 million people across the world have been lifted out of hunger. But as climate change brings more frequent and severe weather shocks such as droughts and floods, and makes rainfall patterns less predictable, these gains are under threat, especially among Africa’s smallholder farmers. Agriculture is Africa’s biggest employer. But mean temperatures are expected to rise faster in the continent than the global average, decreasing crop yields and deepening poverty.

    Indonesia

    There is still a long road ahead before all Indonesian's can benefit from the full potential of ICT. That road seems even longer to rural women.

Infrastructure in rural areas is limited and existing services are expensive and practically outside of rural women's reach. Women still face enormous barriers and access to communications and information relevant to their realities is very limited.

    African governments and international
    development groups see boosting productivity on smallholder
    farms as key to reducing rural poverty and safeguarding the
    food security of farming and non-farming households.
    Prompting smallholder farmers to use more fertilizer has
    been a key tactic. Closing the productivity gap between male
    and female farmers has been another avenue toward achieving
    the same goal. The results in this paper suggest the two are

    Women comprise 50 percent of the
    agricultural labor force in Sub-Saharan Africa, but manage
    plots that are reportedly on average 20 to 30 percent less
    productive. As a source of income inequality and aggregate
    productivity loss, the country-specific magnitude and
    drivers of this gender gap are of great interest. Using
    national data from the Uganda National Panel Survey for
    2009/10 and 2010/11, the gap before controlling for
