A gendered analysis of community profiles of target sites for small ruminant value chain interventions in Ethiopia
Community profiling was conducted to provide an in-depth gendered understanding of the characteristics of the small ruminant value chain intervention sites in Ethiopia. Gender analysis tools and participatory rural appraisal (PRA) techniques were used to capture detailed information about the situation within the communities—using daily activity clocks, seasonal calendars, and access to and control over resource profile. The assessment was conducted in fourteen target peasant associations (PAs), in seven woredas (districts) where the livestock and fish CGIAR research program operates. Overall, 137 men, 114 women, 115 youth (73 male and 42 female) participated in the group discussions.
