The CGIAR Research Program…

But are time-use data useful to explore agriculture-nutrition pathways? This study develops a conceptual framework of the micro-level linkages between agriculture, gendered time use, and nutrition and…

Weather, climate and gender: promoting gender equality in rural climate services
