  • The CGIAR Collaborative Platform for Gender Research (PIM's Cluster 6.2) was launched in January 2017. Read more about the Platform's goal and priorities here. (Video introductions from PIM Director Karen Brooks and the Platform's Coordinator Rhiannon Pyburn are available on the same page.)
  • Members of the CGIAR Collaborative Platform for Gender Research reflect on the United Nations 2017 theme for International Women's Day, “Women in the Changing World of Work: Planet 50-50 by 2030” in this collection of research stories: Women and agriculture: a changing world of work 
  • Benefits of qualitative research stretch far beyond enhancing the interpretation of quantitative results and may even lead to greater publication and funding opportunities from richer and more emergent ideas. In this EnGendering Data blog, Sunny Kim and Jessica Heckert address the added value of and ways to integrate qualitative methods and provide an example from a study on child feeding practices in Bangladesh.
