Coming Soon: Gender and Agriculture Dissemination Workshop
On Wednesday, June 18th, a full-day dissemination workshop will be held in Dhaka to focus on recent research findings from projects relating to gender and agriculture in Bangladesh. Over the last four years, the International Food Policy Research Institute, with the support of the US Agency for International Development, the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, and the CGIAR Research Program on Policy, Institutions, and Markets, has been conducting research on gender and agriculture in Bangladesh.
Among others, this work has involved: (1) measuring women’s empowerment in agriculture in Bangladesh; (2) evaluating the impact of agricultural development programs on men’s and women’s assets; and (3) exploring the relationship between gender, assets, and the ability to adapt to climate change. All of this research has involved new household surveys undertaken by IFPRI in collaboration with its research and implementation partners. The workshop will present recent findings from projects these three areas, and expects to attract 100 guests.
