GREAT delivers courses to agricultural researchers from sub-Saharan Africa in the theory and practice of gender-responsive research, seeking to increase opportunities for equitable participation and the sharing of benefits from agricultural research and improve the outcomes for smallholder women farmers, entrepreneurs, and farmer organizations. By building and engaging communities of researchers equipped with the skills, knowledge, and support systems to develop and implement gender-responsive projects, GREAT advances gender-responsiveness as the norm and standard for agricultural research.
The fifth GREAT course, Gender-Responsive Crop Breeding, will take place online in March 2021. Biophysical scientists will attend Part 1 only, while social scientists will attend both parts 1 and 2.
Part 1: 8th-16th March, 2021
