The International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI) and the International Water Management Institute (IWMI) are issuing a second call for participation for a survey to gather information for a “gendered map” of agriculture in Sub-Saharan Africa in order to better understand how to target water management and other agricultural interventions to women and men farmers.
This survey is an important tool for gathering the invaluable knowledge of gender and farming system experts and pooling this information in a centralized public resource. Documentation of gendered farming system knowledge online with the help of GIS tools can reach new audiences across the globe in a way that traditional publications have not; and we hope that this database will influence bilateral and multilateral program funding and CGIAR research.
If you consider yourself knowledgeable about a farming system in a country, state or district in Sub-Saharan Africa, we encourage you to fill out this 20-minute survey. Even if you cannot answer all the questions in the survey, we encourage you to fill in as much of the survey as you possibly can.
The survey can be accessed IN ENGLISH at: http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/MRKR6RN.
Pour une version FRANCAISE: http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/ZTTJ27T.
For survey participants who are interested to learn more about these topics, we are pleased to send a copy of the book “Household Decisions, Gender and Development: A Synthesis of Recent Research.” To request the publication after completing the survey or if you need a hard copy of this survey, please contact Zhenya Karelina at: Z.Karelina@cgiar.org
To those who have already filled out the survey during the first round, we thank you very much and would be interested in hearing feedback about your experience with this activity. Please also contact us if you would like to obtain the book.
Thank you for taking the time to participate in this important activity!
