The CGIAR GENDER Platform’s work is organized around three interdependent and interlinking modules: Evidence, Methods and Alliances.

The Evidence module is focused on delivering new evidence, identifying emerging issues and closing data gaps. It will identify solutions and trajectories to reduce gender inequalities within the dynamics of a changing food system. The Methods module stimulates critical thinking on gender in agricultural research for development and develops robust methodologies that can support gender equality outcomes. Finally, the Alliances module builds linkages between scientists and engages with external partners to strengthen their gender work and outcomes.
