AWARD envisions an African Agricultural Research and Development (ARD) landscape with organizations, policies, technologies, and programs that attend to the needs of both women and men. This means, making women’s and men’s concerns and experiences integral to the design, implementation, monitoring, and evaluation of all ARD work so that all are represented equitably and benefit equally. The holistic nature, individually tailored approach, intensity, and diversity of AWARD’s training offerings have led to a high degree of impact across all evaluation criteria, as well as research outcomes. However, the ability of the host organization to recognize, accommodate, and create continual growth opportunities is one of the most difficult challenges trainees are likely to face.
Why AWARD Training?
AWARD’s training courses reflect our commitment to unlocking the potential of scientific innovation for agriculture-driven inclusive growth and prosperity. Our courses empower researchers and managers while strengthening institutions to pursue cutting-edge agricultural research.
