The Guide promotes adapting a convergent and people-centred gender approach towards increasing and improving the provision of goods and services from agriculture, forestry and fisheries in a sustainable manner while reducing rural poverty in different priority areas of FAO’s work. This includes gender equality, territorial development, legal aspects and natural resources management (i.e. pastoralist, forestry, watershed management, climate change and fisheries). The approach of “putting people first” entails accepting their diversity of interests, values and positions, and understanding who they are and the reason for their actions. The objective is to find an entry point to promote this approach based on dialogue and negotiations in order to reach a shared vision for a given territory. The IGETI guide is divided into two parts: Part A provides an introduction to the proposed approach for improving gender equality in territorial issues, with specific guidance for each phase of the gender-response planning process; while Part B presents some available participatory tools to support planning of gender-responsive territorial development. Annex I provides a list of useful concepts and definitions, while Annex II presents some lessons learned in the field.
