Women make the difference: training workshop on integrating gender into research

Gender-related issues can have a major influence on the targeting and adoption of new technologies, and must be integrated into research at the earliest stages. A workshop at ICARDA headquarters focused on how to put these principles into practice. The USAID-funded, ICARDA-managed Water and Livelihood Initiative (WLI) organized a training workshop on Integrating gender into research at WLI benchmark sites. The workshop, held on 6-10 March, brought together WLI team members from Jordan, Lebanon, Syria, Palestine, and Egypt, with resource persons from the University of Florida and ICARDA.

The workshop first discussed the basic concepts, including the differences between men’s and women’s roles in agriculture and livelihoods, and the implications of these differences. Training sessions then focused on the use of various analytical tools to design effective, gender-aware research programs at WLI benchmark sites.
