Gender-Sensitive Labor-Saving Technologies and Practices
This brief outlines how and why labor-saving technologies and approaches when integrated with other gender transformative approaches can be instrumental in advancing gender equality and women’s empowerment. This brief offers practical guidance on how with proper assessment, planning, and implementation, labor-saving technologies and practices can increase income, reduce drudgery, potentially increase health and nutrition outcomes for families, among other positive outcomes. Labor-saving technologies and practices should be an integral component of the gender integration strategies of CRS projects and particularly agriculture-related projects.
