CGIAR gender research and perspectives from Science Leaders

CGIAR Collaborative Platform for Gender Research is marking International Women’s Day 2019 with videos, interviews and publications from across the CGIAR system, in support of the United Nations' theme: 'Think equal, build smart, innovate for change'. 

CGIAR research supports women’s equality and innovation, and Science Leaders reflect critically on CGIAR’s capacity for impact on gender equality. 

Contributions:
  • overcoming institutional inertia; ‘tempered radicals’; 
  • how parboiling technologies developed by AfricaRice are affecting rural women in Cote D’Ivoire; 
  • an interactive timeline from WorldFish outlining how its work on Gender Transformative Approaches has developed since 2012; 
  • one woman's inspiring life story from the Africa RISING project; 
  • how climate-smart agriculture technologies reduce women’s drudgery; 
  • how migration and income shocks intersect; 
  • how inequalities are shaped by social, economic, political as well as ecological contexts alongside gender; and, much more. 
The World Economic Forum blog features one of the Gender Champions in the CGIAR System Management Board and Director General of the International Water Management Institute, Claudia Sadoff.
