My doctoral research focuses on Exploring Gender and Women’s Mobilization Strategies for Sustainable Agriculture in Sub-Saharan Africa. I am exploring a research approach that responds to the needs of the farmer organizations, especially the women, and foster dialogue about sustainable agriculture and gender.
The PhD research project takes place in the context of a larger project focusing on Mobilizing farmer organisations for sustainable agriculture in sub-Saharan Africa.
The project is funded by FORMAS and led by Lund University Centre for Sustainability Studies (LUCSUS).
