This one-lesson course considers the gender dimension of rural migration. As men and women experience migration differently, to reduce the vulnerability and empower both rural women migrants and women who stay behind, it is essential to integrate gender into policies and programmes on migration and rural development.
Individuals who would especially benefit from taking the course include:
- UN Country Teams and FAO staff
- Planners, policy formulators and advisors on migration, agriculture and rural development
- Managers and technical staff in the ministries responsible for agriculture, rural development, migration, employment and others
- General public
