Women and Integrated Pest Management
Rural women, on average, spend more time working on pest management than men. Yet truly integrated pest management (IPM) is not possible without women; nevertheless, few publications are available. This wide-ranging book introduces many of the issues, such as reasons for women's involvement (or lack of it) in projects as well as examples of gender-sensitive extension programmes, and health aspects involved.
