Welcome to the first 2021 issue of the CGIAR GENDER Platform newsletter.

Gender equality for a healthy world

In this issue, we share with you latest news from the CGIAR GENDER Platform as well as updates on gender research from CGIAR Centers, Research Programs and Platforms.

More than 500 people participated in a series of CGIAR webinars, all of which recognized the foundational importance of gender in shaping plant health issues and responses.

We also feature two op-eds: CGIAR scientists Vivian Polar, at the International Potato Center (CIP), writes about how women hold the seeds for a stronger food system for Peru, and CGIAR World Food Prize winner Shakuntala Thilsted shares her experience developing nutrition-sensitive innovations that are transforming women’s lives.
