CGIAR Gender

On gender and agriculture: the numbers


Note: Recognizing that gender inequality fundamentally constrains the ability to achieve major strategic results in the new CGIAR Research Programs, in 2011, CGIAR established a network of gender experts.The CGIAR Research Program gender research coordinators form one internal community of practice within the Network, with a common interest in mainstreaming gender in research as they are typically responsible for overall planning of gender research and its reporting. The Network also includes the wider community of CGIAR researchers and partners who have some responsibility for conducting gender research and whose interest is to collaborate and share methods, tools and knowledge to benefit their work. Today, it consists of approximately 170 members, made up of principally of social scientists, science managers and communication specialists.
