In this video, Sara Stevano and Deborah Johnston, Postdoctoral Fellow and Reader in Development Economics, respectively, in the Department of Economics in SOAS, University of London and the Leverhulme Centre for Integrative Research on Agriculture and Health (LCIRAH), share findings from a recent systematic review on agriculture, time use, and nutrition. They identify ways in which gender influences time use in agriculture, the coping strategies people use to manage increased time burdens, and outline some policy considerations related to time use necessary to effectively leverage agriculture for nutrition. The findings from this systematic review were also presented at an IFPRI policy seminar on May 7, 2015. (Details about the event available here: ifpri.org/event/it-time).
*The review was funded by A4NH and the Leverhulme Centre for Integrative Research on Agriculture and Health (LCIRAH), and was conducted by a Main Team composed by Deborah Johnston (SOAS/LCIRAH), Elizabeth Hull (SOAS/LCIRAH), Hazel Malapit (IFPRI), Sara Stevano (SOAS/LCIRAH) and Suneetha Kadiyala (LSHTM/LCIRAH). The project also received advice from experts on time use, gender and systematic reviews, including Agnes Quisumbing (IFPRI), Birte Snilstveit (3ie), Imraan Valodia (Wits), Indira Hirway (CFDA), Naila Kabeer (LSE) and Valeria Esquivel (UNRISD).
