Gender in RICE

  1. 1.  Testing the gender empowerment pathway towards better nutrition in rice-based farming systems  Understanding tradeoffs/synergies between livelihoods and health outcomes due to mechanization and, in the context of feminizing agriculture  Testing entrepreneurship development pathways focused on smallholder women farmers and their collectives CGIAR Research Program on RICE RICE Gender Research for Development Priorities  Unpacking gender and social dynamics associated with rice-based farming systems; understanding potential impacts of diversification on livelihood portfolios, incomes and poverty; labor, employment and input use; nutrition and health; risk management and vulnerability  Understanding gendered trait preferences for rice varieties to inform breeding investment priorities  Expanded opportunities for decent and viable employment and entrepreneurial opportunities for women and their collectives throughout the rice value chain including input and services provision, post harvest value addition and marketing  Reduced gender gap in access to good quality seed of preferred varieties and delivery systems  Reduced women’s drudgery and improved health through mechanization  Increased adaptive capacity to climate change through stress-tolerant varieties, climate-smart technologies, and diversification Main research questions addressed through a combination of strategic and integrated research Formative research and synthesis - What are the key social and gender issues that influence participation of poor men and women in different segments of the rice value chain and the benefits they derive? - What are the implications of these for research priorities; design and delivery of technical and institutional innovations? ME&L, Impact assessment -What are the gender- differentiated impacts of rice- related technologies and institutional innovations on empowerment, poverty, nutrition and resilience? Action research and learning -What strategies work in which contexts to enhance the equitable inclusion and gainful participation of poor men and women in the rice value chains? -How can effective strategies be scaled out? o to set priorities and targets o to understand negotiation processes at household level related to introduction and adoption of new technology o to assess how age, class, location and other intersectionalities affect outcomes for different groups of women and men o to generate evidence on whether the outcomes spill over and benefit different groups of women beyond those targeted o to generate more rigorous and comprehensive evidence of benefits to women beyond yields and income – labor and drudgery, employment, nutrition and health, climate risk management, and women’s decision-making o to weigh potential trade-offs between different outcomes Gender impact pathway Contribution towards an CGIAR-wide gender research framework  Developing and testing methods to understand future-focused gendered trait preferences to inform breeding investment priorities  Unraveling dynamics of gender in seed systems More rigorously use gender and wider socio-economic analyses (mixed methods and spatial tools) Key shifts in focus
