CGIAR GENDER Platform Annual Report 2021

Abstract

2021 was the first complete year of operation for the CGIAR GENDER Platform (the Platform) with its team of Module Leaders, Management Committee and Program Management Unit in place and a wide-ranging portfolio of activities underway. It launched its resource hub, bringing together gender research from across CGIAR, ranging from publications to methods, to expertise. Since its launch it has garnered 50,000 visits. The Platform also launched a series of activities to fill clear knowledge gaps and build a comprehensive database of gender research methodologies. It stepped up its outreach and capacity development through collaboration with Gender-Responsive Researchers Equipped for Agricultural Transformation (GREAT) and African Women in Agricultural Research and Development (AWARD), and equally importantly, through its first full-fledged conference, called
Cultivating Equality’.
