CGIAR Gender Program working paper series

1992 - 2001

This working paper series was produces by the Global Agricultural Research Partnership (CGIAR). CGIAR has a long history of analyzing gender issues to identify innovations that benefit poor rural women. The CGIAR Gender Program series show that women producers have unequal access to land, credit, agricultural extension agents, and technology, and that this unequal access prevents them from producing as efficiently as men. The series demonstrated how engaging women farmers in crucial technology design and development decisions related to new varieties improves adoption by women. The CGIAR Gender and Diversity Program promoted proactive development, recruitment, and retention of women scientists and managers in the system and among national partners.
