series of workshops held from 28 to 30 March 1998 during the London International Book Fair in the United Kingdom
Opening up African publishing to women was the theme of a series of workshops held from 28 to 30 March 1998 during the London International Book Fair in the United Kingdom. The workshops were sponsored by the Zimbabwe International Book Fair (ZIBF) and the Southern African Book Development Education Trust. They covered policy issues that are favourable-or unfavourable-to women entering publishing; case studies of successful situations were also presented. CTA has long accompanied the development of the African publishing sector in its efforts to improve the accessibility of technical information in agriculture and rural development. Given the importance of gender issues in agriculture, more attention needs to be paid not only to women on the farm, but to women at the press. The theme of the 1999 ZIBF (31 July-7 August 1999, Harare) will be Women and Environment, and the focus country this time is South Africa.
