This template is related to the study "Identifying Women's needs related to rangeland governance". The purpose of this study is to explore gender roles, relations, constraints and opportunities in livestock production in interdependent agricultural systems of Tunisia, constituting of forest, rangelands and/or agriculture. Overall, there is very little research conducted on gender issues (such as roles, relations, and responsibilities) in agriculture in Tunisia, even less so in rangelands. The FAO factsheet on gender and agriculture in Tunisia was last updated in 1994 (see http://www.fao.org/docrep/v9321e/v9321e00.htm). This study is therefore an important step towards filling this research gap and particularly bridging gender issues across roles, decision-making power, participation in public life and entrepreneurship, access to resources, innovation adoption, and adaptation to climate change.

The International Center for Agricultural Research in the Dry Areas (ICARDA) was established in 1977. It is one of 15 such centers supported by the CGIAR. ICARDA’s founding mandate to promote agricultural development in the dry areas of developing countries remains highly relevant today.
