Published on

An inception workshop for the Gender, Agriculture & Assets Project Phase 2 (GAAP2) titled Developing Project-Level Indicators to Measure Women’s Empowerment was held in January 2016.

In this presentation, Agnes Quisumbing co-PI of GAAP2 talks about the timeline of the project, logistics and the next steps for the GAAP2 team and the project representatives. Nancy Johnson, also co-PI, then presents the GAAP2 Theory of Change and discusses how the impact of GAAP2 will be tracked.

Timeline, next steps and the ToC - GAAP2 Inception Workshop

  1. 1. Timeline and next steps Agnes Quisumbing and Nancy Johnson, IFPRI Presentation at the GAAP2 Inception Workshop, ICRAF, Nairobi Day 3 - January 29, 2016
  2. 2. Summary: where we are  Thanks to all for great input yesterday  We have synthesized this into the following:  Revised version of A-WEAI questionnaire to incorporate suggestions; not project-specific  Four add-ons (coming soon): modules on individual empowerment; intrahousehold dynamics; mobility; empowerment for nutrition will be developed based on existing modules used in other studies (and validated instruments in other surveys, e.g. DHS)  3 add-ons are potentially core, 1(nutrition) would be optional  GAAP2 team assigned to develop these  For now, information from the “access to information” group will be folded into revised A-WEAI  We will share this (the proto pro-WEAI!) with you for comments  revised A-WEAI in a month—pronto proto-pro-WEAI  Add-ons in two months
  3. 3. Next steps  Projects that fielded some form of WEAI in their baselines: compare what’s in the proto-pro-WEAI and what they have, highlight the differences  Projects planning baseline data collection:  Field proto-pro-WEAI (quant)  Qualitative work (incorporate validation linked to modules; we will work with you on this, to be adapted based on context  Validation of proto-pro-WEAI: with OPHI  Using data from project baselines  Subsequent rounds of data collection in all projects will include refined pro-WEAI  Develop data sharing and authorship protocols  For index validation and for cross-project synthesis work
  4. 4. Logistics  Project specific workplan => contracting. We will use your initial submission and what we’ve learned here to draft contracts, but please interact with us as we go along  Projects: please interact with us on how GAAP2 team can support you; researchers/evaluators in teams please let us know what types of analysis you’d like to do jointly  Field work in preparation for validation  Plan for midterm workshop early 2017 (baseline quant data, qual available)

Establish and support Project WEAI Resource Center 2. Work with capacity building partners and CGIAR partners 3. Facilitation of community of practice and cross-project learning
  10. 10. Tracking impact of GAAP2  In the long run, we will track impact of GAAP2 through use of pro-WEAI and use of project modalities and strategies that have been shown to empower women.  In the short run, we will track immediate changes that results from GAAP2 such as  Changes to project strategies that you make as a result of participation in GAAP2  Incorporation of methods and tools in M&E or evaluation of other projects, including new projects in your organization  Incorporation of projects modalities or strategies for empowering women that you learned about through GAAP2 into new projects  Sharing what you learn with colleagues inside and outside your organization  We will ask about these things in annual reports
