Gender analysis in evaluations of agriculture and food & nutrition security



you why gender analysis in evaluation is important it touches upon the core value of the United Nations equity equity of all right and gender dimension is specific manifestation of this core value that we need to address well tell me skills are very important because in evaluation because otherwise things go wrong I'm not talking about a fad and we are engaged in rural development and that is to a large extent food production and most of the food is produced by women at least in the small hole or agriculture it's the women who produce food and so you can't be successful because without knowing what's going on without looking at the role women play and food production what does it mean gender skills and that comes from I my past experience very often people have claimed to be you know gentle specialists and and in fact working with with different frameworks or sometimes no framework so I think this is why I think it's really important that we work towards a common understanding framework perhaps is a bit too rigid in my view given the various mandates we we have but I think perhaps principles that that is definitely something we need we need to establish the most important element is inequality and that is why gender is important for evaluation because evaluation is supposed to seek understanding it's supposed to contribute to improvements in the work that the agencies or the projects or the interventions are designed to do which ultimately are about working for a less a less unequal society and the ability of every single person in society to be able to generate and sustain a dignified livelihood it's a historical fact and a global fact that men and women have differences and inequalities in access to economic resources in access to knowledge in access to power the training up and design that I put together for this workshop it was based on a survey undertaken between the four agencies really to sort of to bring together the learning approaches that would allow for sharing between the different agencies to build on their experience to let peers share with each other and reflect on their own work and then to bring that into the experience of the workshop so it was really you know built on sort of an adult learning experiential learning model
