Socio-economic and Gender Analysis (SEAGA) Publications by librarian — last modified Aug 31, 2013 06:23 PM
By Socio-economic and Gender Analysis (SEAGA) Program, Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) The SEAGA publications offer practical tools and methods for integrating socio-economic and gender issues at different levels and within different technical areas. SEAGA Information Kit: These documents briefly illustrate what the SEAGA program is about and how it works. Macro, Intermediate and Field Level Handbooks: The three handbooks provide practical information for field workers (field level), development planners (intermediate level) and policy makers (macro level) on how to undertake socio-economic and gender analysis at the respective levels. Each handbook presents case studies and tools to help development practitioners collect, analyze and use information. Each handbook also suggests methods for integrating the findings to policy program and project identification and formulation. Guides: These are issue- and sector-specific guides that integrate socio-economic and gender analysis. For example, the "SEAGA Sector Guide on Irrigation" combines irrigation issues and practices with socio-economic and gender analysis concerns. The emphasis is on 'why' and 'how' to plan activities in a participatory way. The guides use real examples and studies to illustrate main issues and the practical use of tools and concepts.

File Demographic Dynamics, Gender and Resource Use in the Galapagos Islands by Rose Hessmiller — last modified Aug 31, 2013 06:36 PM
By Jason Bremner and Jaime Perez, 2001 This paper reviews the most recent demographic information available from the Galapagos special census. This special census information is compared to previous census data in order to reveal important trends and gender role changes. The remainder of the paper is dedicated to the review of several smaller scale surveys recently conducted by social scientists in the Galapagos. These surveys have in various degrees measured the attitudes, knowledge and practices of different subsets of men and women in the Galapagos. The analysis of existing data is used to make conclusions about gender changes in demographics and potential impacts on resources use patterns and conservation. The paper makes recommendations for mitigating these impacts and incorporating gender-based population-environment research into conservation planning.
