Development Practitioners have recently realized that their efforts have not been yielding the desired results in terms of sustaining developmental efforts and programmes. This is partly due to inadequate consideration given to gender issues in development. In order to promote and ensure sustainable development in our various communities, the needs, problems and concerns of women and men must be harnessed for optimum results to be achieved.
