Structural Adjustment and African Women Farmers

By Christina H. Gladwin; Center for African Studies University of Florida | Go to book overview

percent of smallholder farm households which are female-headed and which consume most of their production are not assisted by these policies. In addition the consumption-oriented policies--those affecting expenditures for education and health (including family planning) especially--have been cut in real terms by the SAPs. When total government expenditures must be reduced, it is difficult for governments to maintain funding in these crucial areas. Nutritional supplementation programs, debt forgiveness, reduced defense expenditures, improved financial management, and credit availability for women for various kinds of incomegenerating activities are therefore suggested as complementary policies to assist in mitigating the adverse effects of SAPs.
