Etudede l'Integration du genre dans la securité alimentaire

Notre étude va aider à identifier ces inégalités de genre dans les chaines de valeur ciblées et d’autres aspects socio-économiques dont les innovations agricoles font face ; car assurer l’égalité des chances et d’opportunités aux femmes et aux hommes vis-à-vis des innovations agricoles, des moyens et services de production, la participation à la prise de décision, l’accès aux ressources etc., s’avère incontournable pour le développement de la province du Sud-Kivu, en particulier et de la RDC , en général.
Une augmentation de la production de qualité doit mettre l’accent particulier sur l’égalité des genres étant donné le rôle important joué par la Femme. Celle-ci constitue une grande partie de la main d’œuvre de production ; et tenir compte des besoins de l’homme en défaveur des ceux de la femme pour qu’elle puisse jouer pleinement son rôle, conduit à la réduction de l’efficacité et à une moindre qualité. La sécurité alimentaire concerne toutes les catégories socio-économiques : hommes et femmes, jeunes et adultes, riches et pauvre indépendamment de leur appartenance socioculturelle. Il est ainsi indispensable de se rassurer que toutes ces catégories aient accès aux innovations agricoles et aux mêmes opportunités pour améliorer leurs conditions de vie.
L’analyse de la situation actuelle de la femme rurale congolaise fait ressortir l’importance du rôle des épouses et mères dans une organisation sociale qui maintient un ordre ancien avec une répartition des responsabilités et des tâches bien établies.
Mais elle montre aussi la place de plus en plus grande que la paysanne occupe dans la production agricole, donc dans la vie économique nationale, place que personne ne lui conteste aujourd'hui. La prise en compte du rôle joué par les agricultrices doit pousser les responsables nationaux via ce projet PRIA à rechercher leur participation et à les faire mieux profiter de la vulgarisation des innovations agricoles ; car l’on constate toujours : (1) Qu’une partie importante des familles paysannes de la province du Sud-Kivu vivent dans une situation de pauvreté telle qu’elles ne peuvent accéder, faute de moyens, aux techniques porteuses d’amélioration ;(2) Que les femmes malgré les efforts faits par le Gouvernement, sont encore très peu concernées par les actions de la vulgarisation et la formation.
Toutefois, l’ensemble des moyens mis en œuvre par le Projet PRIA doit aboutir à une réelle amélioration des conditions de vie des familles des paysans agriculteurs, dont les femmes jouent un rôle important aussi bien pour la survie de leurs familles que pour la croissance économique nationale.

. L’analyse des réalités sociétales devrait permettre de concevoir des méthodologies d’interventions adaptées à chaque catégorie de population, suivant les moyens disponibles. C’est dans une stratégie globale de lutte contre la pauvreté que devraient se situer toutes les actions en faveur des femmes dans cette Province. Dans cette perspective, le souci est de répondre positivement aux objectifs du millénaire pour le développement (OMD) à savoir la sécurité alimentaire, la lutte contre la pauvreté, la promotion du genre et l’analphabétisation.

Nous avons besoin d'un appui financier pour faire cette étude dans notre province et mettre en place une base des données indispensable pour le développement durable.

Our study will help identify gender inequality in targeted value chains and other socio-economic aspects that agricultural innovations face; ensuring equal opportunities and opportunities for women and men vis-à-vis agricultural innovations, resources and production services, participation in decision-making, access to resources etc., proves essential for the development of the province of South Kivu in particular and the DRC as a whole.

An increase in the production of quality must place special emphasis on gender equality given the important role played by women. This constitutes a large part of the labor of production; and taking into consideration the needs of men to the detriment of those of women so that she can fully play her role, leads to reduced efficiency and lower quality. Food security affects all socio-economic groups: men and women, young and old, rich and poor, regardless of their socio-cultural background. It is thus essential to assure that all of these groups have access to agricultural innovations and the same opportunities to improve their living conditions.

The analysis of the current situation of Congolese rural women emphasized the importance of the role of wives and mothers in a social organization that maintains an ancient order with well-established divisions of responsibilities and tasks.

But it also shows the bigger and bigger role that rural women occupy in agricultural production, and the national economy, a role that no one can question today. Taking into account the role women farmers play must push national leaders via the PRIA project to seek their participation and to allow them to better take advantage of the dissemination of agricultural innovations; because we assert: (1) That a significant part of farming families in the province of South Kivu live in such poverty that they can not access, due to a lack of resources, improved methods of transportation; (2) That women despite efforts by the Government, are still largely unconcerned by the dissemination of information and training. In any case, the ensemble of the resources used by the PRIA project should lead to a real improvement of the living conditions of rural families, in which women play an important role both for the survival of their families and for national economic growth.

The analysis of these social realities should help design methods of intervention that are tailored to each population group, according to the available resources. All actions in favor of women in this province should be implemented within a comprehensive strategy in the struggle against poverty. From this perspective, the main concern is to respond positively to the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), namely food security, the fight against poverty, promotion of gender and literacy.

We need financial support to do this study in our province and set up an essential database for sustainable development.
