In this paper, the relationship of women’s individual and joint property ownership and the level of women’s input into household decision-making is explored with data from India, Mali, Malawi, and Tanzania. In the three African countries, women with individual landownership have greater input into household decision-making than women whose landownership is joint; both have more input than women who are not landowners.

IFPRIKM's curator insight, March 5, 2014 10:13 AM

This report is an analysis of the current mandate and operation of the Agricultural Market Information System (AMIS) of the Ministry of Agriculture and Food Security (MoAFS). AMIS consists of five surveys covering prices of crops, livestock, horticulture, inputs, and farmgate crop prices. The report is a direct contribution to the development of the Strategic Master Plan (SMP). The objective of the study was “to adapt the current AMIS to the current needs of key stakeholders in order to provide relevant information for [Agricultural Sector-Wide Approach] ASWAp steering.” The three components were: (1) to review and revise the AMIS mandate and purpose, (2) to assess proposed technology options based on the review and revision results, and (3) to outline institutional adaptations and longer-term investments to implement and maintain the “new” AMIS, for input to the SMP.
