Gender Task Force

In order to ensure that IFPRI continues to be a source of sound research on gender, the Gender Task Force (GenTF) was created in 2004 as an interdivisional mechanism to--

  • Provide support to researchers interested in incorporating gender into their work;
  • Identify new areas for concentrated research on gender;
  • Disseminate information about IFPRI’s work on gender to external audiences; and
  • Link with relevant gender policy research within the CGIAR.

Although two cross-cutting CGIAR research programs (Agriculture for Nutrition and Health [A4NH] and Policies, Institutions, and Markets [PIM]) now have their own gender strategies, there continues to be a role for a gender task force to coordinate, support, and publicize gender research institute-wide.
