Gender issues in livestock production systems in Ethiopia: A literature review
Wole Kinati, Annet Mulema. (27/8/2019). Gender issues in livestock production systems in Ethiopia: A literature review. Journal of Livestock Science, 10 (1), pp. 66-80.
Studies on gender and livestock in Ethiopia are scanty and localized in terms of geographic coverage and gender issues covered. Nevertheless, gender issues in livestock that could potentially influence livestock policy and gender equity have been generated. The gender issues addressed in livestock include gender division of labour; access to, ownership and control over of resources; intrahousehold decision-making; livestock institutions; mobility and the risk of HIV and AIDS; time poverty, perception and agency; women’s invisibility; gender capacity; and changes in gender relations. The review suggested some possible gendered investable options to improve the existing gender inequalities in livestock with a potential of far reaching consequences of improving the livestock systems in general and as well as research gaps for future research.
