The Engendering Data and Methods Blog builds on the “EnGendering Data Blog” curated by PIM in phase 1 of the CGIAR Research Programs. Subsequently, it was hosted by the CGIAR Collaborative Platform for Gender Research website with the overall objective of being a resource for researchers collecting sex-disaggregated data for gender analysis in agriculture.
Together we know more
The goal of this blog was to develop a community of practice around the collection of sex-disaggregated data for gender analysis in agriculture. This will allow us to learn from one another’s successes and mistakes. Many of the lessons that we learn in the process of fielding surveys and qualitative approaches and then analyzing sex-disaggregated data do not make it into published journal articles. By sharing lessons learned about which questions are important in specific contexts, how to frame questions, who to interview, and similar issues, we can collectively improve and simplify our methods of collecting sex-disaggregated data.
We hope that EnGendering Data and Methods will serve as a forum for researchers, policymakers, and development practitioners to pose questions, engage in discussions, and share resources about promising practices in collecting and analyzing sex-disaggregated data on agriculture and food security.
