This post on Dryland Systems’ recent study on “Gender Dynamics in Water Governance Institutions: The Case of Gwanda’s Guyu-Chelesa Irrigation Scheme in Zimbabwe” reveals findings about gender differences in water use, participation in institutions, decision-making power, and perceptions of knowledge and skill.
As part of the USAID-funded Worldfish program Enhanced Coastal Fisheries, poor and rural fishing households like Putul Rani’s receive support and training to farm fish in homestead ponds and grow vegetables for home consumption, helping to sustain their livelihoods while conserving the endangered fish population.
Common stereotypes can hinder the advance of women’s opportunities on the ground. For the International Day for Rural Women, Ruth Meinzen-Dick, Agnes Quisumbing, and Sophie Theis of IFPRI dispel three common myths about rural women around the world.

Gender Research Studies
This is a catalogue of research studies which has been developed to provide an overview of ongoing and past gender related research across CGIAR.
The studies that can be entered to this catalogue can be:
- CGIAR Research that involves the use of sex-disaggregated data: data on individual men and women
- CGIAR Research that involves the use of household data where female-headed households are differentiated from other types of household structure
Use refers to collection or analysis or reporting of results based on primary or secondary data. The study may involve EITHER or BOTH of the following:
- “strategic gender research” i.e. research focused primarily on gender differences
- “integrated gender research” i.e. research focused primarily on a different topic from gender, but that includes gender as a variable
The catalogue will provide input to the Fund Council Gender Monitoring Framework Indicator "Data Collection" which monitors the rate of change in compliance with minimum standards for sex disaggregated data collection
Please note that if you want to share CGIAR Research, such as literature reviews, conceptual work or any other type of research directly related to gender, please contact us at: email@example.com.
