New ‘GENDER’ Platform announced to build more inclusive agricultural benefits in developing countries

Lats month the Consultative Group for International Agricultural Research (CGIAR) announced investment in a platform designed to put gender equality at the forefront of global agricultural research for development.
The CGIAR GENDER (Generating Evidence and New Directions for Equitable Results) Platform aims to transform the way gender research is done, and to kick-start a process of change toward greater gender equality and better lives for smallholder farmers everywhere.

GENDER will build on a wealth of research and learning generated by the previous CGIAR Gender Network and the Collaborative Platform for Gender Research (2011–2019) and others, and it will support the ongoing gender work conducted in CGIAR. GENDER encompasses all 15 CGIAR Research Centers, 12 collaborative CGIAR Research Programs and 3 CGIAR System-wide research support Platforms.
