Household methodologies: Harnessing the family’s potential for change
IFAD is one of the leading development agencies innovating with household methodologies (HHMs) to improve intra-household gender relations, increase engagement with poor households and empower households to realize their development potential by creating stronger, more resilient and sustainable smallholder farming and other rural livelihood systems. The toolkit, comprised of a teaser, a How To Do Note and nine case studies, focuses on HHMs: what they are, how they work, their benefits and the opportunities for integrating them within IFAD-supported operations. This teaser provides an overview of the methodologies and the companion How To Do Note presents a step-by-step guide on how to implement them and is supported by case studies from IFAD and other development agencies. The series is intended for country programme managers, design teams, project staff, development partners and the general public.
