Kalkidan Yimer Ahmed
Ethiopia 2023
Kalkidan Yimer is a gender inclusion expert with over 10 years of experience working in government and developmental organizations. Thanks to her training and experience, she has led in planning, implementing, monitoring, and evaluating gender projects. Kalkidan now hopes to bring her gender-based expertise to agriculture and is counting on the GRASP Fellowship to equip her with the necessary skills to take on projects in the sector.
To understand agriculture, we must understand the gender dynamics within agriculture. I feel I have the right knowledge to contribute to this huge sector at the foundation of Ethiopia’s economy.
Area of Focus
Understanding how women's livelihoods are affected by policies and the impact of evidence-based policy making.
