Gender Research in Dryland Systems

265

Published on

Dr. Malika Martini delivered the presentation on Gender Research at the Dryland Systems launch meeting in Amman on the 21st of May.

The rationale for gender focus in the CGIAR Strategic Results Framework centers on the gender disparities in the adoption of new technologies, resource management and marketing opportunities. It has been found that productivity increases in proportion to the degree to which there is an increase in means in the hands of women and it has been found that improved nutritional status of women and children will lead to reduced intergenerational transmission of poverty.

The gender strategy for dryland systems will integrate gender into the program cycle and should be operational within 6 months. Gender research will be carried out through a series of focus group meetings, stakeholder working groups and a designated member of the CRP board to oversee progress on implementation. A gender component management system will also be put into place to ensure that responsibilities are performed with clear accountability and that mechanisms for managing shared gender expertise with other CRPs or partners are well defined. CRP annual reports are to select a set of outcome indicators for reporting at baseline and on subsequent progress with the main thrust to donors that benefits of the CRP will be equitably distributed.

A gender audit will be performed that will identify, analyze strengths, good practices, weaknesses, gaps and challenges for gender mainstreaming in research.

  • Focus group meetings with line managers of CRPs (explore opinions, discuss why gender is so central to agricultural development etc…)Stakeholder working group? Stakeholders could bring feedback information from different interest groupsDesignate a member of the CRP Board to oversee the progress of the strategy and its implementation (budget)Discuss how to integrate gender into 2014 workplansNew proposal development (criteria for gender consideration for acceptance at the center’s level)Stakeholders to Involve in the Development of our Gender StrategySenior Gender Advisors: Jacqui Ashby, and Jennie Dey de -PrickOther CRPs/ Centers involved in CRP 1.1 (partners) (TBD)Links with other CRPs (advanced in their GS)National research centersRegional research institutesNGOsUN Agencies in place (ex. Un Women, UNDP, FAO in Jordan)
  • The bottom line is:The management is responsible about the implementation of the gender strategy – gender research mainstreamLine managers are responsible about the conception and implementation of the gender strategy.Ex. Individual performance assessment includes gender mainstreaming into their respective workThe strategy should present the management system with which the CRP will ensure that responsibilities for planning, implementing, monitoring and reporting the work presented in the Gender Strategy are performed (to senior levels) with clear accountabilityThe team accountable for these responsibilities should be described. Mechanisms for managing shared gender expertise with other CRPs or partners should be explained. This section should include a synthesis of gender-responsive goals and objectives, showing how management roles and responsibilities will ensure the proposed work will be organized and managed to achieve these.
  • These relate to the products that are explicitely targeted to women/NRM managersProducts assessed for their gender disaggregated impact% technologies for gender disaggregated impactPeople who will benefit (disaggregated)% of innovations/ approaches/optionsNbr of farmers who applied the technologies as a result of CRP research
