July 12, 2018 Online webinar

The CGIAR Collaborative Platform for Gender Research is hosting the webinar ‘GENNOVATE, a qualitative comparative study on gender norms and agency in agricultural and environmental innovation – Study concepts and methodology’. The webinar is organized in collaboration with GENNOVATE.

GENNOVATE is a comparative qualitative study that focuses on how gender norms influence agricultural and natural resource management (NRM) processes, and how agricultural/NRM interventions can affect gender relations. The study that has been carried out by gender scientists across the CGIAR, in 26 countries and 137 communities. In discussion groups and individual interviews, more than 7,500 rural study participants of different socio-economic backgrounds and age groups reflect on and compare local women’s and men’s expected roles and behaviors — or gender norms — and how these social rules affect their ability to access, adopt, adapt, and benefit from innovations in agricultural and natural resource management.
