Agri-Gender: Special issue on Gender and Policies, Markets, and Institutions

The Journal of Gender, Agriculture and Food Security (Agri-Gender) and CGIAR Research Program on Policies, Institutions, and Markets (PIM) celebrated the International Day of Rural Women (October 15) this year by the release of a new issue focused on making women more visible in agricultural policies, institutions, and markets. This is the first volume of a two-part special issue on Gender and Policies, Markets and Institutions, published in collaboration with and funded by PIM.  The issue is jointly edited by the Agri-Gender Editor-in-Chief Jemimah Njuki and PIM's Gender Lead Cheryl Doss.

This special issue is one of the products of the write-shop organized by Agri-Gender and PIM in July 2015 in order to build the capacity of agricultural researchers to conduct rigorous gender analyses and translate their research findings into recommendations.
