If it s not appropriate for women it s just not appropriate. That was the message that re-emerged strongly at the 1999 Zimbabwe International Book Fair held in Harare last August. Under the theme of Women s voices: gender, books and development , an intensive programme of workshops, seminars and encounters focussed on the gender aspects of publishing in Africa. Key parts of the programme were organised by the African Publishing Network (APNET) with whom CTA, given its interest in developing technical publishing capacity in Africa, has worked since its inception in 1992. [APNET, incidentally, signed an unprecedented five-year partnership agreement with five Northern donor partners in New York on 9 November 1999]. CTA s strong presence at the ZIBF was much appreciated by the many visitors working in agriculture and rural development, and gave the CTA delegation a rare opportunity of on-site exposure to gender-focussed exchanges and organisations. This will be especially useful in reinforcing the considerable efforts now underway to improve the distribution and readership of Spore, and the CTA publications output in general, among women and women s organisations.
