Title: Changing policy, climate and gender: the feminism of subsistence farming systems in the Sudan
Author: Elhadi, Omer Tyseer
Abstract: Agricultural development in the Sudan was based on intensification of subsistence farming through privatization of land and applying of technology advancement on farming practices. In such processes, the idea of family labor was demised; women were considered as unskilled and unpaid labor, while extension services, training and credits were mainly directed to men producing cash crops. Another challenging that is facing the subsistence farming in the Sudan is the climatic changes represented in rain variabilities and drought circles. This study using quantitative and qualitative research methods, will analyze how forms of gender-based division of labor or gender contracts formation in subsistence farming are reproduced and transformed under climate and agricultural policy challenges. By doing so, gender gaps in farming will be revealed andadaptive capacities used by men and women farmers to adapt to climate and policy changing will be searched. Conducting of this research will provide data to craft gender sensitive agricultural policies within subsistence farming in the Sudan. Adding new knowledge on the processes of feminization of subsistence farming in the Sudan will positively influence the social and economic conditions of women and men working in subsistence farming systems in the Sudan
