Description

Gender and youth perspective in rural areas
Commitment start and end date: August 2018 to June 2020.
Institution or actor responsible for the implementation: the Ministry of Livestock, Agriculture
and Fisheries (MGAP), Co-responsible: the Ministry of Social Development (MIDES) – the
National Women's Institute (INMUJERES); the National Colonization Institute (INC); the
National Youth Institute (INJU).
New commitment.
Theme: Rural development, Youth, Diversity – Gender
Commitment description
What is the commitment? To include the gender and youth sensitive perspectives in a
participatory manner into rural areas with the objective of
contributing to the production of an Agenda document on rural
women and youth containing needs, proposals and priorities; a
governance space geared towards monitoring and public-private
proposals; and an online environment of transparency and
accountability for performance.
The specific objectives are:
 To bring forward, disseminate and account for the
needs, proposals and priorities of rural youth and
women.
 To develop spaces where rural women and youth can
influence government decisions and follow up on the
way in which progress is made regarding their
proposals and priorities.
 To draw up a document where the work methodology is
registered as a good practice to integrate the gender
and youth perspectives into public policies.
What is the problem that the
commitment will address?
The commitment focuses on the practical needs and strategic
interests of rural women and youth. National statistics show that
these populations are in conditions of inequality with respect to
their rural and urban peers. Generational and gender gaps exist in
rural areas, but there are also emerging gaps that reveal disparities
between rural women and youth and urban women and youth. In
response, this commitment seeks to identify the practical needs
and strategic interests of rural youth and women, and intends to
turn this identification into a public impact tool.
If inequality gaps exist, it is also necessary to point out that the
literature shows that these populations are somewhat invisible on
public agendas. The low demographic weight, the limited presence
of the State and the difficulties for social organization in contexts of
high geographic dispersion, undermine the public influence of
these populations.
How will the commitment
contribute to solving the problem?
This commitment aims to strengthen their capacities to influence
by focusing public interest on the agenda of these populations and
providing them with tools for dissemination, participation and
accountability.
The existence of a systematized agenda helps to guide actions
taken by public agencies in relation to these populations, as well as
to break through the image that restricts rural development to
agriculture.
In turn, meetings and participation forums enable attendants to
organize themselves to influence and are conducive to agendas
being laid out as a set of demands and guidelines from civil
society, and specifically as an instrument of influence for rural
youth and women.
On the other hand, the orderly and systematic posting of the
relevant items on the agendas on a public platform for
accountability represents a strategy of democratization of
information and dissemination, a need especially felt in rural areas.
Finally, the systematization of the cross-cutting participatory
method seeks to draw on a good working practice, which may
serve as input for the multidisciplinary work of other State
agencies.
OGP value to which this
commitment will contribute.
It contributes to accountability since it provides an online
environment where citizens can inform themselves on what has
been done and what is pending with regards to each theme of the
rural gender and youth agenda. It promotes citizen participation
since there are civil society participatory spaces designed together
with organizations and representatives of rural organizations in
both stages, the creation of the agenda and its monitoring.
Additional information
The development of this commitment directly aims at achieving:
 SDG 5 – Gender equality and SDG 10 – Reduce inequality within countries, and in particular
10.2. referred to reducing inequalities including by sex, age, area of residence. And through the
central themes of the agendas of youth and rural women, it aims at least to influence the SDG 2
(Health); 4 (Education); 8 (Decent work and economic growth).
 ENIG – The rural women agenda was linked to the development of the National Strategy on
Gender Equality and has been virtually included in the ENIG, so the advances in democratization
and realization of one, point to a section of the other.
 The Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women (CEDAW) -
Especially Article 14 referring to the conditions of rural women.
 Ibero-American Convention on the Rights of Youth – Especially articles 3 (Contribution of youth
to Human Rights) and 21 (Youth participation).
 Recommendation MERCOSUR/CMC/REC 02/11 on Rural Education.
