Flagship 6 – Cross-cutting Gender Research and Coordination: June – September 2017 updates

  • CGIAR Collaborative Platform for Gender Research announced results of the call for proposals that invited CGIAR researchers to submit proposals on gender relations vis-a-vis technological and institutional innovation, with a focus on gender dynamics in seed systems. Five selected projects will be carried out during the next 18 months and will be co-funded by Policies, Institutions, and Markets (PIM) through the Gender Platform and other CGIAR research programs involved in each project. Visit Gender Platform website for more information. 
  • Flagship 6 leader Cheryl Doss and Greg Seymour (PIM associate research fellow) co-authored new World Bank Group working papers that analyze the three key constructs in women’s empowerment: time use, women’s agency, and ownership and control of assets. (Citations below, read more in this blog)
