    Burkina Faso, Africa

    Aujourd'hui on s'accorde pour reconnaître que les femmes jouent un rôle important dans l'économie des pays et plus particulièrement dans l'agriculture pour les pays fortement agricoles et sous développés comme le Burkina Faso. Cette conviction est traduite au niveau national par l’élaboration des stratégies nationales pour l'intégration des femmes au développement et plus récemment encore par la creation d'un ministère de la promotion de la femme.

    Africa

    In Africa, agriculture is the most important sector in national economies. About 80 per cent of the active population works in agriculture. Further, apart from few exceptions, agriculture makes up more than 50 percent of gross national product. Nevertheless, Africa remains the only region in the world in which agricultural production declined between 1970 and 1980, when the growth rate was less than 2 per cent and moreover the gross national product (GNP) per head is one of the lowest in the world.

    Armenia

    In Armenia, the forestry sector and forest restoration policy development and decision making in natural resources management processes have been shaped as a result of women’s historical every day practices—which are also often drivers of deforestation and degradation—and yet women’s direct participation in these matters is frequently neglected. Forests in Armenia are state property and the management system is top-down, meaning that decisions are made at the government level and passed down through a hierarchy of power.

    Licuri is a highly valuable tree species, both to local ecosystems and in traditional cultural uses, with a clear commercial niche. Its productive and sustainable uses are directly linked to ecosystem conservation and women’s empowerment—which is being further developed to great success. Project partners are working together to increase the mechanization of the licuri harvesting and production process, aiming to lessen the time-burden on women and enhance their livelihood potential.
