While many plant and animal breeders are aware of the significance of genderdifferentiated trait preferences for adoption and eventual impact, there are no clear guidelines on how to factor considerations of gender into their research.
Gender research coordinators of the CGIAR Research Programs shared their experience with regards to what extent gender research has influenced planning and priority setting in their relevant CRPs, crucial bottlenecks impeding progress on this task, and good practices or initiatives that could be adopted more widely.
Indicators of gendered control over agricultural resources: a guide for agricultural policy and research
This paper explores the extent to which it is possible to define simple, robust indicators of gender gaps in use and control over resources that are likely to impact and be affected by agricultural innovation.
The CGIAR Gender and Agriculture Research Network is committed to accelerating the build-up of a critical mass of gender expertise where shortfalls currently hinder progress. One pillar of this commitment is capacity development through cross-program learning and collaborative research, which is what this partnership aims to do.
