L’approccio di genere è una “cosa da donne”?

Donne e uomini non sono uguali. È una banalità? No, se si vuole lavorare seriamente nei processi di sviluppo.

L’approccio di genere non è fare progetti per le donne, non è una disciplina e non è un ambito di intervento come tanti altri nella cooperazione internazionale. L’approccio di genere è un approccio trasversale a tutti gli ambiti, perché si tratta di un modo di guardare le cose.

Questa è la premessa da cui parte lunedì 28 novembre il nostro corso di formazione in diretta online “Approccio di genere nella cooperazione internazionale” tenuto da Luisa Del Turco. Si tratta, in concreto, di conoscere una serie di strumenti che permettono di analizzare ogni attività ponendo attenzione continua alle differenze, alle attitudini e alle competenze di uomini e donne.

GENDER AND ICTs – 2018 FAO Report

While the digital revolution is reaching rural areas in many developing countries, the rural digital divide continues to present considerable challenges. The problem is even more acute for women, who face a triple divide: digital, rural and gender. This publication looks at the benefits of Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) when placed in the hands of men and women working in agriculture and in rural areas. It examines the challenges to be overcome and makes recommendations so that rural communities can take full and equal advantage of the technologies.

It is the result of desk study, online fora on gender held in the framework of the
e-agriculture Community of Practice (, and a review of projects and programmes conducted in regions of the world. This publication starts with a presentation of the challenges and the seven factors of success, followed by an overview of the general existing barriers to women’s access to, control and use of ICTs. Finally, it offers a series of recommendations for better integration of gender in ICT initiatives, based on gender mainstreaming throughout the seven critical factors of success, illustrated with concrete examples.

TURNING PROMISES INTO ACTION: Gender Equality in the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development

This report by UN Women, Turning Promises into Action, comes at a critical time. More than two years into the life of the 2030 Agenda, it calls for dramatic advances in statistics, financing and policies for gender equality, as well as more determined steps towards democratic governance and accountability. Based on robust data and expert analysis, the report takes stock of where we stand on key aspects of gender equality globally; tells us what is needed to monitor progress meaningfully; and provides wide-ranging recommendations for change.
The report leaves no doubt: Gender equality is fundamental to delivering on the promise of the 2030 Agenda. As long as women are economically and socially disempowered in the world of work and in their homes and communities, growth will not be inclusive and we will not succeed in ending poverty. The creation of inclusive and peaceful societies will also remain out of reach until women and girls are safe from all forms of violence and can shape the decisions that affect their lives.
