Social and gender analysis: a research project funded by IDRC-Canada generates and shares new information

Because gender matters: strengthening social and gender analysis in natural resource management in the Middle East and North Africa: this multi-country project, funded by IDRC-Canada, has generated a wealth of information, and helped build research capacity in several countries. Project teams from Algeria, Lebanon, and Morocco, gathered in Rabat, Morocco, 16-19 May, to discuss research and reporting plans for the closing phases of the project.

Opening the meeting, Dr Abdelmajid Idrissi Ammari, General Secretary of INRA-Morocco, noted that the project had delivered good results, particularly in terms of strengthening capacity in this critical but often under-resourced area. Dr Hammou Laamrani, IDRC’s project coordinator, said: “Good analysis, by itself, is not enough – we also need to disseminate the knowledge generated by the project.” He also noted that priorities and circumstances were different – and continuously changing – in each country, creating additional dissemination challenges, but also opportunities to generate results with very wide applicability. The meeting discussed project results, possible improvements to the methodologies used, and the outline of a book that will be produced at the end of the project, to document the achievements and the lessons learnt.
