MAKING GENDER IN RESEARCH A PRIORITY
The Alliance creates strategic learning opportunities to strengthen the gender research capacities of CGIAR scientists and partners by delivering resource materials and training to support the generation of more inclusive, gender-relevant research and findings. We collaborate with the UN Rome-based agencies (FAO, IFAD, and WFP), UN-Women, national partners, and other influential actors to foster gender equality in global policy processes and development initiatives.
BOOSTING GENDER IN CONSERVATION & LEADERSHIP
From Latin America to South Asia and East Africa, we support the creation of community seed banks to conserve local biodiversity. By enabling opportunities and capacities for local women in leadership roles, we help increase gender equality and recognition in their communities.
FINDING SOLUTIONS TO INCLUDE THE MOST VULNERABLE
We develop value chains for indigenous fruit products, prioritizing the livelihood opportunities of vulnerable groups. In India, we worked with women and lower caste-led farmer producer organizations to reduce gender inequalities, improve incomes, and support more harmonious caste and gender relations as well as more sustainable management of valuable trees.
