dc.descriptionAbout 70 per cent of the population in Southern Africa depends on agriculture as the main source of food, income, and employment. Women produce an estimated 70 per cent of the food in the region. Recent studies have pointed to governments' failure to invest in women farmers as one of the major contributing factors to food insecurity in Southern Africa (Drimmie and Mousseaux 2004). This article shares the findings of some Oxfam GB research, conducted in 2006, into government policy towards women farmers in Southern Africa. It focuses on Mozambique. This article is hosted by our co-publisher Taylor & Francis.
