Gennovate: enabling gender equality in agricultural and environmental innovation uri icon

abstract

  • This report synthesizes results from two case studies carried out among the Thai in Northwest Vietnam as part of the global comparative study ?Gennovate: Enabling gender equality in agricultural and environmental innovation?. Gennovate addresses the question of how gender norms and agency influence men and women of different generational and socio-economic groups to adopt and adapt innovations in agriculture and natural resource management. These two case studies were funded by the CGIAR through the Agriculture for Nutrition and Health (A4NH) and contribute to the gender work package of the Nutrition Cluster of Activities of the Humidtropics Research Programmes which attempts to better understand the role of biodiversity at different scales from individuals, households (and their farms), villages and the wider landscapes. The Gennovate global study is carried out collaboratively among various CGIAR Research Programs (https://gender.cgiar.org/collaborative-research/gennovate/)
