FLAGSHIP 6 – CROSS-CUTTING GENDER RESEARCH AND COORDINATION: JANUARY – MARCH 2019 UPDATES

The new brochure Gender Research in PIM summarizes selected recent findings and outcomes from the program's cross-cutting research on gender.

 

 

Melissa Hidrobo presented findings from the study Cash transfers, polygamy, and intimate partner violence: Experimental evidence from Mali at the Centre for the Study of African Economies (CSAE) conference that took place in Oxford on March 17-19, 2019. (Cross-cutting work between flagship 4 and 6)

 

In their Devex blog Measuring the unintended benefits of a development program, Akhter Ahmed, Ishita Ahmed, John Hoddinott, Melissa Hidrobo, and Shalini Roy share their experience of evaluating the Transfer Modality Research Initiative in Bangladesh, focusing on the TMRI unintended benefits, which include reduction in intimate partner violence and improved nutrition knowledge and practices of community members who were not part of the program. (Cross-cutting work between flagship 4 and 6)

Shalini Roy presented findings from the study on the effects of transfers and behavior change communication on intimate partner violence, evidence from rural Bangladesh at the CSW side-event “Leveraging cash transfers to reduce intimate partner violence at scale” on March 13, and then on March 18 at the World Bank’s  event “Experts Join Your Team for a Day: Addressing GBV - Evidence from randomized control trials.”(Cross-cutting work between flagship 4 and 6)

The CGIAR Collaborative Platform for Gender Research hosted by PIM put together an impressive campaign for this year's International Women's Day, featuring research from across CGIAR and interviews from four Directors of CGIAR Research Programs (CRPs) - Vincent Gitz (Forests, Trees and Agroforestry), Victor Kommerell (Program Manager of MAIZE and WHEAT), Izabella Koziell (Water, Land and Ecosystems), and Frank Place (Policies, Institutions, and Markets).
