How developing communities of practice can accelerate gender research


‘’Gender research can be very exciting, but sometimes lonely, as often there is only one gender researcher in each project,” proposed Arwen Bailey, a knowledge sharing specialist at The Alliance of Bioversity International and the International Center for Tropical Agricul-ture (CIAT). Bailey was introducing a discussion among CGIAR gender researchers on how communities of practice (CoPs) can help accelerate and improve gender research, as part of a three-day GENDER Science Exchange conference that took place in October in Nairobi, Kenya.
