Update on Livestock and Fish research program output 3: Gender and society

  1. 1. Update on Livestock and Fish research program output 3: Gender and society Paula Kantor (WorldFish) Livestock and Fish Gender Working Group Workshop and Planning Meeting Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, 14-18 October 2013
  2. 2. Objective of Output 3 • “Strategies and approaches that increase women’s and marginalized groups’ entitlement to access markets and control resources, technologies, labor, power and the benefits of their work” • Focuses on wider social context within which a value chain functions: how well does it enable equitable participation, on good terms, and control over the benefits? • Entitlement is key: – own sense of entitlement; – recognition by others of women’s and other marginalized groups’ capacities and claims to engage in markets; – translation of society’s recognition into the way formal and informal institutions allocate opportunities and resources
  3. 3. Approaches to gender integration (www.igwg.org)
  4. 4. 2013 actions • Prepared one proposal for gender transformative research, to the Gender Innovation Lab with a series of L&F partners (Uganda, Tanzania & Ethiopia) – Unsuccessful, but can be pitched to other donors • Drafted tools that integrate GTAs in value chain analysis – Need to be field tested in 2014 • Plans for a paper on the social embeddedness of value chains and relevance of GTAs to value chain performance and distribution of outcomes
  5. 5. Looking ahead • Fundraising ideas (AGRA, BMGF, IDRC, ESRC…) – Revise GIL proposal and resubmit – Role of men & masculinity in fostering WEE through livestock and fish VCs (Anna Sikira) – Potential for achieving ‘transformative employment’ in livestock & fish VCs (with IDS) • Examine the conditions under which VC employment has been transformative for poor women: for which women, under what conditions? – Gender, risk and technology adoption studies
