Gender-based drivers of participation in sheep breeding cooperatives in Ethiopia
Reta Hailu, Wole Kinati. (26/12/2018). Gender-based drivers of participation in sheep breeding cooperatives in Ethiopia.
Collective actions and formation of cooperatives are crucial for small ruminant community-based breeding programs. Women’s participation in agricultural cooperatives is generally low in Ethiopia and the lack of participation adversely affect their ability to accrue benefits as members of cooperatives. Although women perform most of small ruminant husbandry activities, they have less control over of the animals and associated benefits.
