Synopsis:

'Gender and Governance in Rural Services' provides policy-relevant knowledge on strategies to improve agricultural and rural service delivery with a focus on providing more equitable access to these services, especially for women. It focuses India, Ethiopia, and Ghana, and focuses on two public services: agricultural extension, as an example of an agricultural service, and on drinking water, as an example of rural service that is not directly related to agriculture but is of high relevance for rural women. It provides empirical microlevel evidence on how different accountability mechanisms for agricultural advisory services and drinking water provision work in practice, and analyzes factors that influence the suitability of different governance reform strategies that aim at making service provision more gender responsive. It presents major findings from the quantitative and qualitative research conducted under the project in the three countries, which are analyzed in a qualitative way to identify major patterns of accountability routes in agricultural and rural service provision and to assess their gender dimension. The book is intended for use by a wide audience interested in agricultural and rural service provision, including researchers, members of the public administration, policy makers, and staff from nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) and international development agencies who are involved in the design and management of reform efforts, projects, and programs dealing with rural service provision.

Review:

"A thorough, well researched, and carefully structured study that analyzes the nature of womenA?s experience of rural public services A? and the findings are fascinating. The introductory framing of the research problem and questions is extremely well-written and compellingly sets out the reasons why the issue of womenA?s access to agricultural extension services and water are such major developmental concerns. Gender and Governance in Rural Services is rich with data and has strong recommendations that will go a long way in forming our thinking on technical assistance and policy advice in governance of service delivery." --Anne-Marie Goetz, Chief Advisor, Governance, Peace and Security, UNIFEM

"Gender and Governance in Rural Services contains an impressive amount of important information regarding extension services and will provide useful knowledge in the design of projects and approaches to address the needs of women farmers." --Jeannette Gurung, Director, Women Organizing for Change in Agriculture and Natural Resources (WOCAN)

"I want to convey my deep appreciation to the authors of this report for their excellent data collection, covering a large section of relevant stakeholders, analytical case studies, and a thorough analysis of the status of service delivery in the countries surveyed, especially for women." --Dr. S. S. Meenakshisundaram, Visiting Professor, Rural Development and Decentralized Governance, National Institute of Advanced Studies, India
