Women in development in Southern Africa is the series title of a four-volume bibliography which covers Botswana (Volume I), Lesotho (Volume II), Malawi (Volume III) and Zambia (Volume IV). The proposal to compile a bibliography of women in development was made in 1987 at the workshop on Agricultural Information Sources held in Malawi and sponsored by CTA. Participants, conscious of the growing awareness of the indispensable role of women in development, expressed interest in undertaking this project, a project which CTA agreed to sponsor.
Each volume contains an annotated list of authors. There are over 300 entries in the Botswana volume which include both published and unpublished material. The entries have been divided into eleven broad subjects including agriculture, health and welfare, legal rights, economic development and education. Within each subject area the entries are arranged alphabetically according to the author. Each entry is numbered and contains detailed bibliographic information and, in most cases, this is followed by a description of the publication. The other three volumes follow the same basic format.
The bibliographies are aimed at researchers, extension workers, development personnel, teachers and trainers. They bring together all the available material on issues concerning women and development in the four countries.
