Gender, Agriculture and Assets Project

Evaluating the Impacts of Agricultural Development Programming on Gender Inequalities, Asset Disparities, and Rural Livelihoods

The project looks at a variety of agricultural development projects to what is the impact of these projects on men’s and women’s assets with assets defined quite broadly (e.g. livestock, genetic resources, equipment, access to markets, extension, social capital, human capital and so on) and whether gender targeting makes a difference in terms of outcomes. This project is jointly administered with the International Livestock Research Institute (ILRI). The project is funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.
