Projects that build infrastructure and provide equipment to increase agricultural productivity and income: • CARE-Bangladesh (and its twin, EADD—training, group formation);3. Projects that develop improved crop varieties and agricultural practices: • Cereal Systems in South Asia (India—rice); • Orange-fleshed Sweet Potato (Uganda—new variety); • Helen Keller International (Burkina Faso—vegetables).
  5. 5. Asset Transfer Projects: Common Themes Understanding cultural concepts of ownership (what does it mean to own or control an asset?); Identifying and understanding gender- specific barriers to asset acquisition and control; Measuring impact of asset transfers on men’s and women’s assets and the gender asset gap; Methods of increasing women’s ownership of /control over key assets over time (even if asset transferred to her, no guarantee she MoneyMaker! Treadle has control; if asset transfer is not targeted, pump in Kenya examining if there are gender biases in asset acquisition and how to overcome these).

  7. 7. Why have a conceptual framework? Helps identify HOW: • Gendered asset distribution affects outcomes • Outcome of agricultural programs differs by gender • Building assets takes place in a way that is gendered Guides attention to key processes for evaluation Provides basis for comparison and learning across different case studies
  8. 8. Each component is genderedWomen’s JOINT Men’s Women and men have separate assets, activities, consumption, etc. Households also have some joint assets, activities, consumption, etc. Shading of each component as a reminder that we need to consider gender—separation and jointness in each
