WP 1991-16: Gender Issues in Agrarian Reform and Rural Nonfarm Enterprise

Inasmuch as a large portion of the family labor force in the farm is women and youth, the Comprehensive Agrarian Reform Program can substantially impact on the role of these groups on development. This paper reviews the gender issues in rural nonfarm enterprises (NFEs) and agrarian reform areas. It identifies the role of women in NFEs and agrarian reform areas and shows how various government policies reinforce or impinge on their role. It also identifies empirical issues that need further investigation, including claims that have not yet been validated by empirical results.
