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

Do you know of a plant breeding effort that is trying to have more gender equitable impact? Submit a brief description for a chance to receive a grant of USD$10,000 

To help make breeding efforts more gender responsive, the CGIAR GENDER Impact Platform, in collaboration with the International Potato Center (CIP) and Gender Responsive Researchers Equipped for Agricultural Transformation (GREAT), 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.

Who can nominate?
Nominations for cases can come from anyone who has been involved with or knows well a breeding program that purposefully made efforts to integrate gender in breeding objectives.
