Project Blog:

The Inception Workshop will be the kick off to the IFPRI/ILRI ‘Evaluating the Impacts of Agricultural Development Programming on Gender Inequalities, Asset Disparities, and Rural Livelihoods Project’ (funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation). This project will evaluate 8-10 agricultural projects (research and development) funded by several organizations (e.g., the BMGF, World Bank, USAID, and others) to identify the projects’ impacts on women’s assets and clarify which strategies have been successful in reducing gender gaps in asset access and ownership. IFPRI and ILRI will oversee a participatory process engaging program donors and implementing partners.
