As part of the efforts to generate evidence on gender and agriculture – including livestock – to inform policy and practice, the Regional Strategic Analysis and Knowledge Support System (ReSAKSS) and the Poverty, Gender and Impact (PGI) team of the International Livestock Research Institute will be having a training workshop on ‘Collecting Gender Disaggregated Agriculture Data ’ on 26th and 27th September 2011 at the Intercontinental hotel, Nairobi, Kenya.
The workshop brings together agriculture and monitoring and evaluation experts from Kenya, Uganda, Ethiopia, Burundi, Tanzania, Democratic Republic of Congo, Malawi, and Rwanda. Participants will share their experiences on integrating gender in monitoring and evaluation, and go through the process of engendering the Comprehensive Africa Agricultural Development Program (CAADP) monitoring and evaluation framework, collecting, analyzing and reporting gender and agriculture data.
Jemimah Njuki from PGI and one of the presenters at the workshop says one of the constraints to integrating gender in agriculture development is the lack of gender disaggregated data on agriculture investments and how gender influences agriculture productivity and growth in the region. This workshop is an important step in developing capacities in the region to collect this data and make it available to policy makers for planning.
