This report documents those detailed gender dimensions of root and tuber crops (RTC) farming practices, showing how differently men and women engage in them, and it also provides a critical analysis of the gender considerations required for interventions. There are certain commonalities across field sites in the four countries. Firstly, RTCs are very important food crops for poor households, and while men are predominantly in charge of large-scale commercial farming, women have some autonomy for small-scale crop and livestock production, especially in marginal spaces such as homegardens, and for small-scale processing businesses. This suggests that interventions that strengthen small-scale production and/or processing of RTCs are likely to directly support women from poor households in strengthening food resilience
