Égalité des sexes et autonomisation des femmes: Note sur la transposition à plus grande échelle

avril 2015
Le FIDA a obtenu des résultats importants en matière de promotion d’approches et de processus novateurs d’intégration de l’égalité des sexes favorables aux pauvres dans ses opérations, un domaine dans lequel l’Organisation possède désormais un avantage comparatif. La part des femmes dans les projets appuyés par le FIDA continue de croître, elles représentent désormais la moitié de tous les bénéficiaires. La croissance agricole est plus forte lorsque les femmes, comme les hommes, sont en mesure de participer pleinement aux activités économiques. Lutter contre les inégalités entre les sexes et favoriser l’autonomisation des femmes sont ainsi des objectifs essentiels en vue d’améliorer la sécurité alimentaire et nutritionnelle et de donner aux populations rurales pauvres les moyens de se libérer du joug de la pauvreté. Les faits montrent que dans les économies où l’on observe une plus grande égalité entre les sexes, aussi bien sur le plan des possibilités que des bénéfices, non seulement la croissance économique est supérieure mais la qualité de vie est également meilleure.

Reverdir le Sahel: développer l’agriculture dans le contexte du changement climatique au Burkina Faso

septembre 2011
Déjà vulnérable, le Sahel est très exposé aux impacts des changements climatiques, sa population étant fortement dépendante de l’agriculture pluviale et de l’élevage. La variabilité des précipitations, la dégradation des sols et la désertification sont quelques-uns des facteurs clés qui influent négativement sur les moyens de subsistance des populations locales. Des sécheresses, avec des degrés variables de gravité, se produisent deux années sur cinq, ce qui rend les récoltes des cultures vivrières et de rente très aléatoires. Les sécheresses récurrentes des années 1970 et 1980 ont provoqué des pertes énormes de produits agricoles et d’animaux, des pertes en vies humaines causées par la famine et la malnutrition, des déplacements massifs de population, et ont eu des impacts économiques graves. De plus, la plupart des modèles climatiques prévoient que le Sahel sera encore plus sec au cours de ce siècle.
