Capacity development of partners in agricultural value chains is a critical piece to achieving gender equity.
Many organizations express interest in integrating gender into their programming, but lack the knowledge and understanding of how to do so.
Capacity development was highlighted as a priority in the Livestock and Fish Gender Strategy, ‘Increased gender capacity within CGIAR centres, partner organizations and value chain actors to diagnose and overcome
gender based constraints within value chains’.
As part of this priority, a study was undertaken with partners in targeted livestock and fish value chains in four countries to ascertain their gaps in gender capacity related to integrating gender into agricultural programming. Results from the study will be used to inform the development of gender capacity materials and future trainings for partners.
This discussion paper highlights the results of the study.
