Abstract

Understanding the role of gender equality in the adoption of Climate Smart Agriculture (CSA) is crucial to ensure future food security in Uganda. This paper applies a mixed methods approach, firstly qualitatively analysing relevant gender equality measures among Ugandan farmers. Relying on the qualitative results, the potential influence of gender equality on adoption of CSA in Uganda is subsequently empirically analysed using nationally representative data. Qualitative results suggest gender equality should be measured considering resource allocation, decision-making and views on gender roles – implying an updated framework is needed in this regard. Empirical results from binary probit and Heckman two-step model specifications suggest gender equality, manifest in views on land inheritance, positively influences CSA-adoption among Ugandan farmers. Data availability however constrains the empirical analysis, highlighting the urgent need for gender-disaggregated data.
