CGIAR GENDER Platform Annual Report 2020

Abstract

2020 was an exciting inception year for the new CGIAR GENDER Platform. The Platform established a team, partnerships and solid foundations for future research, capacity and engagement efforts. First, a Platform Director was appointed, then a Program  Management Unit, leaders of the Platform’s three modules and finally an interim (subsequently a permanent) Management  Committee. Several accomplishments were hallmarks of the first year, ensuring ease of transition and collaboration across CGIAR: the Platform supported each CGIAR Center through grants to  complete gender-focused outputs and ensured CGIAR-wide representation in the Platform through appointment of Gender Research Coordinators from each Center.
