CGIAR Collaborative Platform for Gender Research

Gender Dynamics in Seed Systems

The CGIAR Collaborative Platform for Gender Research is working with five CGIAR research teams to better understand different aspects of gender dynamics in seed systems. In July 2017, the CGIAR Collaborative Platform for Gender Research put out a call for proposals on gender relations vis a vis technological and institutional innovation, with a specific focus on gender dynamics in seed systems.

These research projects are being carried out from September 2017 – February 28 2019. We take a broad understanding of seed systems that includes vegetative material as well as inputs for agroforestry or fish agro-food systems. Principal Investigators of the selected proposals are convening at the Scientific conference and capacity development workshop of the CGIAR Collaborative Platform for Gender Research on December 5-8 2017 at KIT Royal Tropical Institute in Amsterdam to explore common ground across the projects on gender dynamics in seed systems, and to contribute to the emerging framework for CGIAR-wide gender research. All projects are a co-investment of the Platform – through the CGIAR Research Program on Policies, Institutions, and Markets (PIM) – along with other CGIAR Research Programs, Centers and/or bilateral projects.

This is the first call for cross-program gender research through the Platform for what will be an annual calls on different for research on gender and aqua/agriculture and natural resource management themes (funding dependent).
