Making A Difference With IFPRI Gender Research

  1. 1. Making a difference with IFPRI gender research Agnes Quisumbing, IFPRI #IFPRI40 November 18, 2015
  2. 2. What is different about gender research? • It looks within the household: women and men, boys and girls • It looks beyond the household: context, institutions, policies matter
  3. 3. • Evidence-based • Iterative: synthesizes learning from interventions and policies and coordinates knowledge exchange • Integrative: Combines qualitative and quantitative work • Holistic: Both women and men, girls and boys What makes IFPRI gender research different?
  4. 4. • Cross-cutting: from land to water, households to communities to value chains, nutrition to education, and across the lifecycle! • Spotlights data gaps (e.g. land rights) and provides guidance for filling those gaps (both conceptual guidance and concrete tools like survey modules) • Integrated across all of IFPRI’s major research programs/themes What makes IFPRI gender research different?
  5. 5. • Not afraid to challenge paradigms – 1990s: the unitary model of the household  collective – Today: only individual decisionmaking or ownership matters  jointness • Not afraid to measure the unmeasurable – Women’s Empowerment in Agriculture Index (WEAI) What makes IFPRI gender research different?
  6. 6. • Changed development paradigms about targeting head of household – PROGRESA and subsequent waves of targeted CCTs • Incorporated into programming to reduce gender gaps – Both national and local levels • Shifted objectives of programming and measurement to focus on assets and empowerment – Ex: design of new Bangladesh Min. of Ag pilot project informed by WEAI baseline data How has IFPRI’s gender research made a difference?
