The CGIAR Collaborative Platform for Gender Research is calling for research proposals on the topic ‘Feminization’ of agriculture: Building evidence to debunk myths on current challenges and opportunities. Proposal submission deadline - September 17, 2018.
The term ‘feminization' of agriculture is used widely but inconsistently. With this call, the Platform aims to have a collection of projects that analyze how gender roles and responsibilities in agriculture are changing, drawing on both qualitative and quantitative data. The selection committee will take a broad understanding of agriculture that includes agroforestry, fish agro-food systems, and other natural resource domains. The proposed research should engage with discourse on the feminization of agriculture and seek to validate/challenge persistent assumptions about women and gender dynamics in agriculture and related sectors.
Up to 4-6 projects will be selected. The selection will be based on the quality of the proposed research and its potential to contribute to the development of the research agenda for the CGIAR Collaborative Platform for Gender Research, and the clarity of the proposal.
