The Sustainable Environment Food and Agriculture Initiative Lagos Nigeria, is engaging women farmers in oyo state Nigeria in a project "folk to farm" . Through this initiative we are working with farmers to understand their challenges especially with transition to Sustainable farming practices. We then deplore need base intervention which could be extension services, access to finance, organising farmers into cooperatives etc. We plan to scale to neighbouring osun state, once we get support. info@sefaai.org

My name is Clement Bisai, I am MEAL specialist for CARE International in Malawi but also financial inclusion specialist focusing on mutual commercial relationship between formal and informal (which has more women) service providers. Thanks for the good presentation from our panelists. I have two questions as below.1. The structural setting of most African culture strongly gives ownership of land to men than to women. It appears in programming and including our panelist still consider this as a priority area to address in order to empower women and raise their profile.a. My question: Is it not possible to use the same setting to the advantage of women without challenging the existing structural barriers to land ownership? In my opinion the high accessibility level of land to women can be a big opportunity. I can imagine of immigrants like Chinese and Indians who don’t own land but use our land for their maximum benefit.2. The current panelist are only women with the exception of this guy standing on behalf

2. The current panelist are only women with the exception of this guy standing on behalf of Emilia. In the opinion of the organizers, doesn’t this selection of panelist that has a woman face be latent barrier to women empowerment? Don’t we need men champions for women empowerment?
