Farmers, farm women or farmers’ wives?

As we move forward, and explore the role of women and their identity in the context of agriculture, it is critical to move away from identifying them as simply farm women, or farmers’ wives (except in a situation where it is indeed the case) but more so as farmers given their significant contributions to agriculture.

Featuring collaborative gender research across CGIAR

Research and lessons learned from a collaboration between the CGIAR Research Programs on Roots, Tubers and Bananas (RTB), and Policies, Institutions and Markets (PIM) to produce gender-sensitive tools to make value chain interventions more gender responsive have been shared during a training workshop for CGIAR gender research experts.

A space to reflect

During these weeks of training we experienced a recurring theme, or rather tension which gender research is caught amidst. When our task is to bring evidence for the need of contextualizing gender relations, highlighting complexity and diversity of power relations and moving beyond the discussion of “the gender gap”, shall and can we ensure scalability and wider impact?

Towards a comprehensive understanding of changing gender roles

“Changing gender roles and responsibilities,” is an important topic of discussion in the world of agricultural research for development today. This is most often owing to the fact that males in India are often perceived as being more outgoing than females, or the simple fact that in most instances men have better access to information, resources, etc. than women. While…

Krista Isaacs

My research interests combine crop ecology, human nutrition, gender, and participatory research in order to co-create sustainable agricultural systems with smallholder farmers. Smallholder farmers approach their livelihood strategies from a holistic and complex perspective and in order to co-create resilient systems – we must communicate and collaborate across knowledge systems. From a research perspective, this requires adaptive trans-disciplinary approaches and…
