Recently, in July 2017, African Women in Agricultural Research and Development (AWARD) launched a new initiative that has now positioned it to scale up its contribution to agricultural research and development. The initiative, Gender Responsive Agricultural Research and Development (GRARD), seeks to support institutions to design research agendas that can drive sustainable and inclusive growth, by enhancing gender responsiveness within their research priorities and processes.
Noting the critical role of research in agricultural development and its influence in the performance of the agricultural value chains, AWARD now seeks to influence agricultural research and development (ARD) institutions to be more intentional in embedding gender responsiveness in their research activities. GRARD’s primary objective is to enhance gender responsiveness and inclusiveness across the African ARD sector by strengthening the ability of research institutions and individual scientists to conduct more inclusive, better targeted, and better-designed agricultural research in Africa.
