Integrating gender in dryland systems research

  1. 1. Integrating Gender in Dryland Systems Research Aden A Aw-Hassan CRP Dryland Systems Extension Proposal Workshop Amman, Jordan, 28-31 March 2014
  2. 2. Strategic Focus • Embed gender – conceptually in the CRP’s systems framework & approach – technically & operationally in research cycle • Ensure accountabilities for addressing gender • Integrate gender in M&E and data management
  3. 3. Objectives On 22 March 2014 the CGIAR Consortium Office approved the Strategy. In approving the Dryland Systems (DS) Gender Strategy, the CGIAR Consortium Office stated its particular appreciation of the first two of the Strategy’s four objectives (section 5.2), which are central to the entire Strategy. In essence these are to: • Apply/adapt/develop and implement more effective interdisciplinary methods to integrate gender into ex ante diagnostic analysis, priority setting, and research planning and implementation for the entire CRP (all 8 IDOs). Technology Cycle • Improve knowledge of key cultural, ideological, normative and institutional factors that lead to gender inequalities and undertake innovative development-oriented participatory action research that may need to be policy-oriented to bring about gender-responsive and transformative change in gender inequality (all 8 IDOs).
  4. 4. Provisional activities, outputs, outcomes for the GS 2014 Period Activities Outputs 2014 Q2 1. Workshop Gender Focal Points of all DS participating Centers and Regional Coordinators (26-28 May 2014) 2. Some Gender Focal Points to represent the DS Gender Team in the DS Science meeting 1st week July 2014, to contribute to mainstreaming gender and socioeconomic issues into DS systems framework Specific gender-related activities (and related outputs & outcomes) for X Regions/Action Sites/technological innovation development programs. Develop/agree methodology for participatory action research for promoting transformative change in gender inequality, and select one or more Action Sites for piloting this methodology in 2015.
  5. 5. Period Activities Outputs 2014 Q2-4 Identify capacity building needs, design & carry out series of CB activities for biophysical scientists in gender issues and analysis and for gender specialists in basic science for dryland systems X no. of biophysical scientists trained (by type of CB, and by sex, region, etc) X no. of gender specialists trained in basic science related to DS (by type of farming system/science discipline, and by sex, region etc.)
  6. 6. 2014: Q2-4 Activities Outputs Document successful implementation of gender integration in technology development and adaptation –whole technology cycle (identify cases for each regions) Technologies and interventions with much grater gender equity Contribute 1 or more case studies to the Consortium Office’s Gender and Agriculture Research Network cross- CRPs program on the Transformation of Gender Norms in Agriculture and Natural Resource Management. At least 1 or 2 case studies carried out, analyzed and disseminated (peer- reviewed journals, briefs for DS researchers etc.). DS case studies used in comparative analysis of all the CRPs’ case studies in this cross-CRP program
  7. 7. 2014: Q2-4, Continues Activities Outputs Develop and implement a Gender M&E system (and impact pathway) within the broader CRP M&E system, using the CO’s indicators, supplemented where appropriate with additional indicators specific to the DS Program. Collect/analyze data on these indicators for annual reporting to the CO. Prepare analytical reports and briefs on the progress on gender integration and gaps.
  8. 8. Activities Outputs On the basis of the CB and GWP incorporate gender into ex ante diagnostic analysis, priority setting and research planning in X regions or IDOs X no. of research programs with gender mainstreamed (by region, action site, IDO, etc.) 2014: Q3-4
  9. 9. POWB Implementation (expected achievements and indicators) Performance Indicator CRP performance approaches requirements CRP performance meets requirements CRP performance exceeds requirements 1. Gender inequality targets defined Sex-disaggregated social data is being collected and used to diagnose important gender- related constraints in at least one of the CRP’s main target populations Sex-disaggregated social data collected and used to diagnose important gender-related constraints in at least one of the CRP’s main target populations Sex-disaggregated social data collected and used to diagnose important gender-related constraints in at least one of the CRP’s main target populations And And The CRP has defined and collected baseline data on the main dimensions of gender inequality in the CRP’s main target populations relevant to its expected outcomes ( IDOs) The CRP has defined and collected baseline data on the main dimensions of gender inequality in the CRP’s main target populations relevant to its expected outcomes (IDOs) And CRP targets changes in levels of gender inequality to which the CRP is or plans to contribute, with related numbers of men and women beneficiaries in main target populations
  10. 10. Performance Indicator CRP performance approaches requirements CRP performance meets requirements CRP performance exceeds requirements 2. Institutional architecture for integration of gender is in place - CRP scientists and managers with responsibility for gender in the CRP’s outputs are appointed, have written TORS. - CRP scientists and managers with responsibility for gender in the CRP’s outputs are appointed, have written TORS and funds allocated to support their interaction. CRP scientists and managers with responsibility for gender in the CRP’s outputs are appointed, have written TORS and funds allocated to support their interaction. - Procedures defined to report use of available diagnostic or baseline knowledge on gender routinely for assessment of the gender equality implications of the CRP’s flagship research products as per the Gender Strategy - Procedures defined to report use of available diagnostic or baseline knowledge on gender routinely for assessment of the gender equality implications of the CRP’s flagship research products as per the Gender Strategy - Procedures defined to report use of available diagnostic or baseline knowledge on gender routinely for assessment of the gender equality implications of the CRP’s flagship research products as per the Gender Strategy -CRP M&E system has protocol for tracking progress on integration of gender in research -CRP M&E system has protocol for tracking progress on integration of gender in research And A CRP plan approved for capacity development in gender analysis -CRP M&E system has protocol for tracking progress on integration of gender in research And A CRP plan approved for capacity development in gender analysis And The CRP uses feedback provided by its M&E system to improve its integration of gender into research
  11. 11. Questions for group discussions • Identify technologies or interventions with high opportunity for gender integrations and which sites that these could be implemented. • Identify cases where innovative development-oriented participatory action research with policy-orientation can be implemented using advanced knowledge of key cultural, ideological, normative and institutional factors that lead to gender inequalities, to bring about gender-responsive and transformative change in gender inequality (all 8 IDOs). • Identify capacity building needs for biophysical scientists in gender issues and analysis and for gender specialists in basic science for dryland systems
  12. 12. For group discussions Case title Locations/ region Describe main issues. Technologies/ opportunities 1. 2. 3. 4. 5.
