On gender and agriculture: webinar series
This webinar series on issues related to gender and agriculture was developed in collaboration with CGIAR Research Programs and partners. It is designed as a knowledge sharing tool to facilitate exchange among members of the CGIAR Collaborative Platform for Gender Research.
The objectives are:
- Promoting knowledge sharing on gender research
- Increasing the visibility of CGIAR gender research

As the CGIAR Collaborative Platform for Gender Research is in the process of winding down in its current shape, we are no longer planning any further series of webinars, but still encourage you to share ideas of potentially interesting webinars that could be hosted by the successor to the Gender Platform in 2020 – please contact Ewen Le Borgne (e.leborgne [at] cgiar.org) for any such webinar idea.
