CCAFS scientists share insights on the directions for climate action in agriculture in this special issue on climate-smart agriculture (CSA) in the journal of Agriculture for Development.
What indices are used to measure women’s empowerment? How do these indices relate to women’s empowerment in agricultural and natural resource management settings? How has economic modelling of household resource allocation changed over the past 30 years, and why does this matter? These were some of the questions that the GRIT participants delved into during week 2 of the Gender…
From June 4-23, 17 CGIAR post-doctoral fellows and gender specialists are together at Pennsylvania State University (PSU) to explore advanced gender research methods at the Gender Research and Integrated Training (GRIT) Workshop. Learn more about the workshop in this blog.
Addressing gender in agricultural research for development in the face of a changing climate: where are we and where should we be going?
This synthesis from IFPRI demonstrates that men and women are exposed to different climate shocks, that impacts of climate change can be gendered, and that women are less likely to act to reduce their climate vulnerability. However, clear guidelines on how to address the needs of both men and women in different environments and agricultural systems are still lacking. The synthesis…
Does the gender composition of forest and fishery management groups affect resource governance and conservation outcomes? A systematic map
This study from the CGIAR Research Program on Forests, Trees and Agroforestry (FTA) suggest that including women in forest and fishery management groups in India and Nepal can result in better resource governance and conservation outcomes. However, substantial gaps in the evidence base coupled with social, economic, and ecological differences globally, make it problematic to generalise the findings from India and Nepal to other geographies.
