The International Livestock Research Institute (ILRI) and The International Centre for Agricultural Research in the Dry Areas (ICARDA) have been organizing a tailor made gender capacity development intervention for the CGIAR Research Program on Livestock and Fish research and development partners in Ethiopia.
The Maziwa Zaidi (MZ) program held a critical reflection workshop in November 2016 to analyse progress made against expected outcomes in its Theory of Change (ToC) over the last 12 months.
On 14-18 November 2016, the MoreMilkiT project officially handed over producer group development plans, group profiles and results from a recently concluded producer organizations sustainability assessment, to the local government authorities in the project areas
On 18–20 May 2016, a small group of researchers from the International livestock Research Institute (ILRI) and WorldFish working in the Livestock and Fish program participated in a writeshop to consolidate all the different value chain tools produced and used over the past four years into one comprehensive value chain analysis toolkit. The objective is to produce a toolkit- a well-organised set of tools that can be used to identify ‘best bet’ interventions that improve the effectiveness, efficiency and inclusiveness of livestock and fish value chains – that can be adopted by other practitioners in agricultural research for development.
On 15 October 2015, ILRI, ICARDA and ATA joined hands to demonstrate their commitment to integrate gender in agricultural programs by sharing the gender capacity assessment methodology and tools developed by the CGIAR research program on Livestock and Fish.
This paper synthesises ILRI’s experience with the Crop and Goat Project (CGP) in Tanzania from a gender perspective.
