INTRODUCTION

Integrating Gender Dimension into
Monitoring & Evaluation
Of Rural Development Projects
Introduction
Three quarters of all poor people in developing countries live in rural areas. Their livelihoods usually depend either directly or in -directly on agriculture, with women as the main producers of food on farms. In sub-Saharan Africa, for instance, they produce up to 80% of all staple foods, both those for use in the home and for sale in the market. Rural areas are facing major challenges today which arise mainly from globalization, demographic change and the rural migration of young, well-trained people. Policies for rural areas aim to contribute to recognizing and making use of strengths and opportunities. For the betterment of rural areas Rural Development Projects are launched .These projects helps the rural masses in upgrading their lives. Rural development generally refers to the process of improving the quality of life and economic wellbeing of people living in relatively isolated and sparsely populated areas. Rural development has traditionally centered on the exploitation of land-intensive natural resources such as agriculture and forestry. However, changes in global production networks and increased urbanization have changed the character of rural areas. Increasingly tourism, niche manufacturers, and recreation have replaced resource extraction and agriculture as dominant economic drivers.

The need for rural communities to approach development from a wider perspective has created more focus on a broad range of development goals rather than merely creating incentive for agricultural or resource based businesses. Education, entrepreneurship, physical infrastructure, and social infrastructure all play an important role in developing rural regions. Rural development is also characterized by its emphasis on locally produced economic development strategies. In contrast to urban regions, which have many similarities, rural areas are highly distinctive from one another. For this reason there is a large variety of rural development approaches which are used globally. The Research Problem

I am doing this research to find out the problems and the effectiveness of rural development projects. In rural areas even basic utilities of life are not provided. They don`t have shelter, food, clothing etc. Poor households and lagging regions often depend heavily on agriculture, especially in Africa where more than 70% of the poor depend on agriculture for their livelihood. African productivity per worker has fallen since 1980, and it seems likely that adoption of new technologies could boost incomes and reduce poverty. Research aims to understand productivity differences between farms and to identify policies for...
