GAAP Intro Presentation - Dhaka Gender Workshop

  1. 1. The Gender, Agriculture, and Assets Project: Toward a new paradigm in agricultural development programming Research supported by Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation through the project, “Evaluating the Impacts of Agricultural Development Programming on Gender Inequalities, Asset Disparities, and Rural Livelihoods”
  2. 2. Objectives and overview  Objective: To reduce the gap between men’s and women’s use, control and ownership of assets, broadly defined, by evaluating how and how well agricultural development programs build women’s assets  Four-year project, supported by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation (mid 2010-mid 2014);  Jointly led by IFPRI and ILRI , including 8 core project collaborators working in sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia;  Dreaming big and thinking ahead: Might be the start of a new paradigm in agricultural development programming!

  4. 4. Gender, Agriculture, and Assets Project (GAAP) • Evaluate 8 agricultural development projects to: 1. Identify the projects’ impacts on men’s and women’s assets 2. Clarify which strategies have been successful in reducing gender gaps in asset access and ownership • Use a participatory process between implementers , evaluation partners, and GAAP team, to add a gender perspective to existing impact evaluation • Use existing baseline surveys and new targeted studies (qualitative and quantitative) to document men’s and women’s assets and the change in those levels over the life of the project. • Provide training and technical assistance to program staff in methods to identify and address gender disparities in assets. • Contribute to a development toolkit and practitioners guide to reduce gender asset disparities and help to place gender considerations at the center of agricultural development.
  5. 5. What we want to achieve
  6. 6. GAAP Partner Organizations
  7. 7. Project intervention approaches Partner Country Assets transferred Gender view of project BRAC Bangladesh Cattle, goats, poultry birds, or land for horticulture Gender aware CARE Bangladesh None Gender transformative Harvest Plus Uganda Orange Fleshed Sweet Potato (OFSP) vines Gender aware HKI Burkina Faso Hens, seeds Gender transformative Kickstart Kenya and Tanzania None Gender blind Landesa India Land titles, basic inputs (seeds) Gender aware Land O’Lakes Mozambique Improved dairy cows and training inputs Gender blind CGIAR CSISA India None Gender blind
  8. 8. Project Evaluation design GAAP contribution Landesa Propensity weighted regression Qual work (FGDs, KIIs, life histories); input into quant survey module BRAC CFPR-TUP Randomized controlled trial (RCT) Qual work; input into gender and assets modules in endline CARE-SDVC Propensity weighted regression Qual work; input into gender and assets modules, additional modules for endline LOL MSDDP Early vs. late livestock recipients Qual work (FGDs, KIIs, life histories); input into quant survey module HKI-EHFP RCT Qual work; input into gender and assets modules Harvest Plus REU RCT Qual work, including social network analysis; input into gender and assets modules CGIAR CSISA Econometric approaches; Experimental auction Qual and asset module in mid-line quant survey; Funding for analysis time to focus on social networks KickStart Early vs. late pump buyers Funding for qualitative work Project approaches to evaluation
  9. 9. Two main findings that cut across projects  Gendered use, control, and ownership of assets affect the take-up of agricultural interventions  To participate in a dairy-value chain project, you need a dairy cow!  Agricultural interventions affect the gendered use, control, and ownership of assets  Agricultural development projects, even if not asset transfer projects, can affect men’s and women’s use, control and ownership of assets
  10. 10. Papers for this session  BRAC Challenging the Frontiers of Poverty Reduction-Targeting the Ultra Poor Program  How do intrahousehold dynamics change when assets are transferred to women? Evidence from BRAC’s Challenging the Frontiers of Poverty Reduction-Targeting the Ultra Poor Program  CARE-Bangladesh Strengthening the Dairy Value Chain Project  “Can dairy value chain projects change gender norms in rural Bangladesh?”  For more on GAAP, see: http://gaap.ifpri.info
