Crafting the Next Generation of CGIAR Gender Research

  • Date

How can agriculture and natural resource management advance gender equality? Asking this question rather than only its inverse — what does gender analysis bring to agriculture and natural resource management? — elevates the objective of gender equality within CGIAR, challenges boundaries in thinking about gender in agriculture, and stimulates new and creative perspectives.

Gender researchers from across CGIAR are preparing a landmark publication that synthesizes recent research and sets a forward-looking agenda for gender research in the areas of agriculture and natural resource management. This seminar will share key reflections from the book.
