Women make significant contributions to the rural economy in all developing country regions. Their roles differ across regions, yet they consistently have less access than men to the resources and opportunities they need to be more productive. Increasing women’s access to land, livestock, education, financial services, extension, technology and rural employment would boost their productivity and generate gains in terms of agricultural production, food security, economic growth and social welfare.
This publication presents an introductory guide to hack events for the cultural sector. It examines some of the main types of hacks, what the benefits are for individuals and organisations taking part, the different approaches to engaging various communities and how to create the right environment. It details some of the essential ingredients that are required for success, and explains the rationale for common approaches.

Written by smallholders for smallholders, this book gives first hand experience of the common problems which, at one time or another, anyone looking after farm animals on a small-scale will meet up with and certainly should know what to look out for and how to take steps to treat and prevent them. It doesn?t in any way claim to replace the role of the vet but it does recognise that its readers will be in close daily contact with every animal in their care. They should therefore be in an ideal position to spot any early signs of trouble, often quite simply knowing that a particular animal is ?not quite themselves? which in itself calls for closer inspection.
