CGIAR and partner create guidelines to enhance gender transformative change
In the food security, nutrition, and sustainable agriculture space, the Joint Programme on Gender Transformative Approaches for Food Security and Nutrition (JP GTA) and the CGIAR GENDER Impact Platform achieved a significant milestone with the development of the “Guidelines for measuring gender transformative change.” The guidelines’ purpose is to enhance the capacity of research and development partners from the United Nations Rome-based Agencies—Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD), and World Food Programme (WFP)—the European Union, CGIAR, and other organizations in designing, implementing, monitoring and evaluating gender-transformative interventions.
The official unveiling of the guidelines occurred during a virtual launch event held on 26 September. The authors and thematic experts emphasized the importance of incorporating indicators capable of measuring gender transformative change into the monitoring and evaluation frameworks of food security, nutrition, and sustainable agriculture initiatives. The Deputy Director of the WFP Gender Equality Office, Elizabeth Burges-Sims, moderated the event.
