Supporting gender-inclusive farm mechanization is critical as the share of the female labor force in the agriculture sector has been increasing every year due to the outmigration of young male individuals and an aging farm labor force.
We have provided two mini power tillers to the Chidungkhar and Khoyar Organic Buckwheat groups in Gomdar Gewog to address the labor shortage, enhance production, and create employment opportunities through hiring businesses.
Thank you, Gomdar Gewog Administration and Agriculture Extension Office, for your collaboration.
We will be providing similar support to other identified gewogs.
The project is supported by the Coordination Office for Development Cooperation of the Austrian Embassy in Thimphu.
