Call for cases: Integrating gender into breeding objectives and decisions – what works, where and why?

Submit a brief description for a chance to receive a grant of USD$10,000

GREAT, in collaboration with the CGIAR GENDER Impact Platform and the International Potato Center (CIP), seeks to identify experiences across the globe in integrating considerations of gender differences into plant breeding, to understand what worked, where, for whom, how, and why.

People from or familiar with organizations that have tackled integrating gender into breeding objectives and decisions are invited to submit a brief summary of their experiences. Of particular interest are cases which describe the methods and approaches used to capture different stakeholder perspectives and how these have informed the breeding process.

Each of the ten selected submissions will receive a grant of $10,000 USD towards the cost of writing the case study, which will be published in a journal-length paper authored by the implementing team.

Submit your case online by September 30.
