Integrating gender in policy research and outreach


January 30, 2020


Thursday, 6 February 2020, 9:00 AM - 10:30 AM EST

Organized by the USAID Feed the Future Innovation Lab for Food Security Policy Research, Capacity, and Influence (PRCI), the International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI), and the CGIAR Research Program on Policies, Institutions, and Markets (PIM)



There is growing recognition of the importance of gender issues in policy and research. Gender equality is recognized as one of the Sustainable Development Goals, and is key to achieving most of the other goals as well. Yet it is often not clear what this means, in practice, or what kinds of knowledge and interventions are needed to contribute to these goals.

This webinar discusses key gender issues and entry points for policy research and outreach, focusing on processes for integrating gender into each stage of the research process, including priority setting, research design, methodologies, conduct of research, and communications for impact.
