WEBINAR: Data and information management tools for the CGIAR Gender and Agriculture Research Network

Date: Wednesday, June 1, 2016 Time: 09:00 a.m. EST

Background: The International Center for Tropical Agriculture (CIAT) provides support on communications, data and information management to the CGIAR Gender and Agriculture Research Network. A key component of this initiative is to provide data and information management tools and systems to support the needs and requirements of the network and its members.

Purpose: The purpose of this webinar is to showcase how members of the CGIAR Gender and Agriculture Research Network can use two data management tools recently developed by CIAT.

The first is an inventory which aggregates gender research studies from across the CGIAR Consortium and displays it in an easily accessible central space. The second, is a navigator that shows how users can navigate the sex-disaggregated data matrix developed by the CGIAR Research Program on Policies, Institutions and Markets (PIM), thereby allowing for a more in-depth search.

Feedback and input from this webinar will be used to further refine and improve these tools and the suite of support provided by CIAT to the gender network.

Presenter:  Leroy Mwanzia, Data and Information Manager, International Center for Tropical Agriculture (CIAT)
Leroy leads CIAT’s  data and information management team which is responsible for managing the Center’s research data and outputs in line with the CGIAR Open Access and Data Management policy.  He has over 10 years of experience creating and working with large information management and data management systems. He previously worked with the World Agroforestry Centre (ICRAF) in Nairobi, creating research data management systems.

About this webinar series: This is the third in a recent webinar series on issues related to gender and agriculture developed by the CGIAR Gender and Agriculture Research Network in collaboration with CGIAR Research Programs and partners. It has been designed as a knowledge sharing tool to facilitate learning and exchange.
