Women, migration and the decline of smallholder agriculture : paper presented to the Board for International Food and Agricultural Development, Washington, D.C. by Elsa Chaney( Book )

8 editions published between 1980 and 1985 in English and held by 163 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

If there are cash remittances, the family left behind may shift production and consumption patterns. If a dependency on remittances develops, there may be a loss of self-sufficiency in the production of food and other necessities. Even if migrants return, there may be a reluctance to take up agriculture again. This paper argues that policies designed to increase food for the poor cannot succeed unless they take into account the problems faced by the women left behind as food producers

Scenarios of hunger in the Caribbean : migration, decline of smallholder agriculture, and the feminization of farming by Elsa Chaney( Book )

4 editions published between 1982 and 1983 in English and held by 43 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Food deficits, malnutrition, and associated nutrition-deficiency diseases in the Caribbean are topics full of uncertainties for policymakers. Many studies have been carried out over the years on the nutritional status of specific population groups, based on vital statistics, clinical data, and dietary and anthropometric surveys. This paper suggests alternative ways to advance our knowledge of why people in the region are undernourished and where planners might direct their energies in seeking solutions. Rather than focusing on nutrition surveys, the paper sketches a series of interlocked "scenarios" that analyze the larger systems generating hungry people: in particular, out-migration from rural areas, the decline of smallholder agriculture, and the feminization of farming
Empowering older women : cross-cultural views : a guide for discussion and training, with selection from the "Empowerment" workshops at the conference on Coping with Social Change: Programs that Work, Acapulco, Mexico, June 1989, and the conference of the Association of Women in Development, Washington, DC, November 1989 by Elsa Chaney( Book )

9 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 38 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This awareness-raising module on women at midlife and older ages in cross-cultural perspective is intended for discussion groups, workshops, and college courses on women's lives in different societies. Based on empowerment workshops in Acapulco, Mexico, and the District of Columbia, in which women from a wide range of social classes and occupations participated, the publication has three parts: (1) a paper, "Empowerment of Older Women: Evidence from Historical and Contemporary Sources," written as a background document for the workshops by Elsa M. Chaney; (2) transcripts of the two discussions at the workshops; and (3) a study guide designed for discussion groups and workshops aimed at a general audience, as well as for groups that wish to go more deeply into the demographic aspects of aging populations. The study guide contains outlines for three discussion sessions. Session I provides background information on empowerment of older women. Session ii covers some of the main points in the Chaney article on older women's empowerment in cross-cultural perspective. Session iii is based on the "conversations" at the workshops among 13 empowered older women from 10 countries. Excerpts from "Aging in the Third World" (Kevin Kinsella), with extensive statistical data, are provided in support of session I.A list of resource organizations concludes the publication. (Kc)
