Gender research is critical to IFPRI's mission of contributing effectively to food and nutrition security and poverty reduction. This includes both research in which gender analysis is a key focus of the methodology and research in which gender is a significant variable in the analysis.
For the past 15 years, IFPRI has collected data, tested models, and generated important findings on how gender relates to food and nutrition security, power and resource allocation within the household, market development and trade, institution-building, land tenure, natural resource management and overall economic development and poverty reduction.
