Gender in Agriculture Partnership

Transforming agriculture to empower women and deliver food, nutrition and income security

Bi-annual Dimitra Newsletter

Dimitra publishes a bi-annual newsletter which provides information about the activities of the project, its partner organisations and other civil society organisations in developing countries. The newsletter is available in English and French and is disseminated worldwide.

The latest Dimitra Newsletter highlights experiences of develop­ment approaches that are helping in the fight against poverty in rural areas. Reducing rural poverty is one of FAO’s strategic objectives, to which the Dimitra project is making a special contribution. Innovative methodologies have been developed which seek to place participation, gender and empowerment of rural communities and organ­izations at the centre of FAO activities. You will also find in this issue a dossier which outlines the impact of the CLCs in the Orientale Province of the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). A listeners’ club forum in Isangi, which brought together members of 60 listeners’ clubs in the Province, offers a starting point to exam­ine the results obtained.
