Gender Strategies

CGIAR Research Program on Wheat Gender Strategy


The WHEAT gender strategy is conceived as part of a process of continual improvement. As such the current strategy represents the second iteration, incorporating information from the 2013 WHEAT gender audit and is aligned with the 2014 WHEAT extension proposal. The documents introduces CRP WHEAT very briefly (1.2),before presenting the objective of the WHEAT gender strategy (2); the rationale for addressing gender in WHEAT (3); and the beneficiaries of the WHEAT gender strategy (4). This is followed by an overview of the gender impact pathway for WHEAT (5), and section 6 which explains the approach to integration of gender analysis and gender research perspectives in each of the WHEAT Flagship Projects. Section 7 addresses the mainstreaming of gender in institutional frameworks and procedures, and is followed by a separate section on monitoring and evaluation (8). The WHEAT gender budget is described in section 9, while the organization of gender integration is explained in section 10. The final section (11) comments on the capacity for gender analysis and –research in WHEAT.
