    There is increasing awareness that integrating gender into development frameworks is critical for effective implementation of development strategies. In working to alleviate rural poverty, the CGIAR Research Program on Aquatic Agricultural Systems (AAS) recognizes that “business as usual” gender integration approaches will not deliver lasting and widespread improvements in agricultural productivity, poverty reduction and food security. In response, AAS operationalized a gender transformative approach (see Cole et al. 2014a, 2014b).

    Demographic data

    Gender - Makwe and Guyu have more females in the scheme (60.5% and 55% respectively). Masholomoshe has the highest number of males (53.3%). Discussion with the sampled households revealed that male headed families hardly face labour problems, and high percentages of female irrigators have a negative impact when it comes to operation and maintenance. In terms of gender distribution there are more women irrigating than males.

    This report contains information on a rapid field assessment of Boran pastoralists of southern
    Ethiopia to: (1) gauge local communities’ perceptions of the need for local climate change
    adaptation strategies and their degree of satisfaction with existing interventions; (2) identify
    emerging climate risk adaptation strategies; and (3) evaluate how existing and new strategies
    including efforts by non-governmental organizations and the Ethiopian government might
    complement or be compromised by index-based livestock insurance (IBLI).
