Generating Evidence and New Directions for Equitable Results (GENDER) is CGIAR’s new platform designed to put gender equality at the forefront of global agricultural research for development. The Platform will transform the way gender research is done, both within and beyond CGIAR, to kick-start a process of genuine change toward greater gender equality and better lives for smallholder farmers everywhere.
A world in which gender equality drives transformation toward sustainable, productive and climate-resilient food systems.
Launched in January 2020, GENDER builds on a wealth of research and learning generated by the previous CGIAR Gender Network and the Collaborative Platform for Gender Research (2011–2019). It encompasses all 15 CGIAR Research Centers, 12 collaborative CGIAR Research Programs and 3 CGIAR system-wide research support Platforms. GENDER is hosted by the International Livestock Research Institute (ILRI) in Nairobi, Kenya.

CGIAR gender community
The CGIAR gender research coordinators, gender scientists and post-doctoral fellows from across the CGIAR system make up important parts of the CGIAR gender community. The Platform also serves external partners, a group that includes national agricultural research and extension systems, university partners, non-government organizations, multilateral institutions and governments with whom CGIAR collaborates.
