NEW YORK (AL and KAH for APC) - Smallholders in the desert region of Huaral
depend on irrigation cooperatives to water their crops. For ten years one coop
association has been developing an information system based on telecentres to
help them to make informed agricultural decisions. But the system is being
under-utilised and they decided to find what was going wrong. Using APC's Gender
Evaluation Methodology (GEM) they found that older people and women over 40 were
being left behind. While decision-making spaces are still mainly all-male, at
least some issues identified by women are now on the table.
