Global Programme on Participatory Research and Gender Analysis for Technology Development and Organisational Innovation


"The aim of this paper is to introduce a programme which brings a number of the international agricultural research centres of the Consultative Group on International Agricultural Research together to collaborate with of a variety of other institutions including national agricultural research institutes and non-governmental organisations. The programme will attempt to advance the methodological development and institutionalisation of participatory research and gender analysis (PR/GA). It will, however, take a critical approach to the range of participatory methods currently in use and it lays great emphasis on measuring impact and cost effectiveness. An important goal is to disseminate strategic methods and institutional innovations to the full range of agricultural and natural resource research and development practitioners and to improve the efficiency of the agricultural research system itself."
