Gender is often inherent in the notion of participatory development, but not automatically addressed. Without addressing the issue of gender, and without the techniques for addressing and understanding the issue in the day to day activities of extension staff, participatory extension practices will not necessarily improve livelihoods. This paper describes how an agricultural extension department in Zambia attempted to understand gender relationships and adjust methods and messages to them.
