Development interventions that target climate adaptation and mitigation must foster women’s agency and leadership and improve outcomes for women to be successful. But how can climate adaptation and mitigation interventions be designed to support women? And what research is still needed?




The CGIAR GENDER Platform, USAID, Feed the Future and the International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI) came together in a workshop on Friday, February 4, 2022, to discuss these questions. The goal was to strengthen linkages between CGIAR and USAID on gender in research and capacity building for climate action. Recordings of key presentations are available below.
