Foyers ruraux, ecosystemes agricoles et gestion des ressources rurales: un guide pour elargir nos conceptions de la sexospecificite et des systemes d'exploitation.

The guidebook attempts to broaden thinking about gender and farming systems. These concepts are explored to widen understanding of the complex relationships that comprise households, agroecosystems and the way rural resources are managed. Four learning steps are presented: your concept of a farming system; farm household's concept of a farming system; farm households and gender relationships; and farm households and agroecosystems. The latter section covers the different agroecosystems exploited by various enterprises, including integrated fish farming systems.
