Gender and Innovation Processes in Wheat-Based Systems: GENNOVATE Report to the CGIAR Research Program on Wheat
GENNOVATE, or Enabling Gender Equality in Agricultural and Environmental Innovation, is a qualitative comparative research initiative of 11 CGIAR Research Programs (CRPs). Together the GENNOVATE research team is advancing a two-track strategy of contributing authoritative qualitative research and catalyzing gender-transformative change in international agricultural research for development (AR4D).
The WHEAT gender strategy is conceived as part of a process of continual improvement, where the strategy will be revised periodically as additional knowledge becomes available. As such the strategy, at this point in time, outlines the process that is envisioned, but once the initial strategic elements such as gender audit and systematization of existing knowledge has been undertaken, it will be possible to add more detail and specific depth to the process of integrating gender in WHEAT, and thus to the implementation of the strategy.
