    • Women agricultural producers, despite their significant participation and contribution to farming, are not recognized as farmers in official policy, and the society is not ready to accept them as farmers in their own right. Apart from the absence of their names in land records and poor legal awareness, women also suffer from gender biases in a patriarchal land administration and agricultural service environment.

    Peru

    Desde el giro neoliberal de la economía peruana, el gran agronegocio corporativo y latifundista se ha posicionado como el modelo de desarrollo de la actividad agraria en el Perú, en detrimento del campesinado y de la agricultura familiar. Para ello, el Estado estableció condiciones normativas y políticas que permitieron la concentración de la tierra por parte de estas empresas y su dominio sobre las relaciones laborales.

    Small Family Farms Country Factsheet: Tajikistan
    Policy Papers & Briefs
    December, 2018
    Tajikistan

    Although only 5 percent of Tajikistan's land area is farmable due to the country's mountainous geography, agriculture accounts for 53 percent of total employment. Among those households that engage in agriculture, almost 90 percent can be classified as small family farms. With 0.2 hectares on average, Tajikistan's smallholders operate on very marginalized farmland which makes it less surprising that on-farm income and income from non-agricultural wages are almost evenly balanced.

    Tajikistan

    ABSTRACTED FROM EXECUTIVE SUMMARY: Throughout Tajikistan, land, and access to it, is paramount to continued resilience and improved livelihoods of rural citizens. Agricultural output, especially from small to medium sized farms, constitutes a disproportionately high percentage of Tajikistan’s overall Gross Domestic Product (GDP) and represents an opportunity for continued economic growth for both the farmers and the country.

    Land reform by default: uncovering patterns of agricultural decollectivization in Tajikistan
    Peer-reviewed publication
    January, 2017
    Tajikistan

    Like that in other post-communist states, Tajikistan’s agricultural decollectivization was initiated through top-down measures. However, the implementation process has not been uniform across the state’s territory; in some districts collective farms were quickly and thoroughly broken up, while in others the process is just now beginning. In this paper, we investigate spatial variation in Tajikistan’s decollectivization process.
