Heinrich Boll Foundation (HBF) seeks a) to document the impact of climate change on the livelihoods of rural women farmers, b) to understand the ways their gender intersects with and is impacted by other social factors such as gender roles, expectations and other social norms and practices held in their localities (intersectional factors) that affect especially women’s social-economic empowerment in Senegal, Morocco, Nigeria and Tunisia, and c) to collect success stories on novel and transformative agro-ecological responses led by women in the four contexts.
HBF is producing the documentaries as part of its “Transform Africa” projects. The documentaries will be accompanied by a short paper or booklet on the same subject. The documentaries will form part of advocacy materials that will be used on both new and traditional media to influence decision-makers within and outside the continent in order to provide support to scale up adoption of agro-ecological practices and support women small holder farmers.
The main goal for the documentary on Senegal is to produce a film on the impacts of climate change on women small holder farmers and their responses. Specific objectives of the documentary are:
- Create a portrait of women farmers practicing agro-ecology in Fatick (district of Foundiougne) and/or in Kedougou (Bakho or Dimboli) and dealing with the patriarchal system, and working on good practice of adaption to face the impact of climate change.
- Document the impacts of multiple gendered drivers of change and barriers that further compound their experience with climate change.
- Identify and document success stories of best agro-ecological practices, which are climate resilient and improving livelihood of women farmers in Senegal.
- A 10 minutes’ documentary providing insight into the impacts of climate change on women small holder farmers in Senegal and other gender barriers that they face in their specific context.
- The documentary will include clips of success stories of best agro-ecological practices adopted by the women and document coping mechanisms against patriarchic social structures.
