The role of gender in agricultural development (Inglês)

What factors contributed to adoption of a gender perspective among those centers that have done so successfully? Why have the other International Agricultural Research Centers (IARCs) found it difficult to deal with gender issues? What next steps should be taken by the CGIAR (Consultative Group on International Agricultural Research) system to ensure system-wide attention to gender? Guided by these questions, the paper begins with an overview of the rationale for including gender issues in agricultural research and development, then summarizes the existing gender issues recommendations made to the CGIAR system. A synthesis of the discussion and recommendations made on differential user groups and gender issues at the 1987 International Centers Week is included. The next section highlights innovative strategies and approaches taken by some centers to deal with certain gender issues. This is followed by an analysis of the reasons for the difficulties within the IARC community of incorporating gender-sensitive research and development. Based on this analysis, and drawing upon the successful experiences from within the CGIAR system, the final section outlines next steps and alternative strategies to assist the CGIAR system in achieving a better gender balance in the methods and operation of its research program.
