Webinar: Assessing Agricultural Technologies for their Impacts on Gender Roles and Nutrition

Date: 
24/08/2016

Designing and disseminating technologies through Agricultural Extension Services in a gender-responsive and nutrition-sensitive way can help extend the benefits of technologies like increased productivity, income, and food availability to both men and women. Join the Integrating Gender and Nutrition within Agricultural Extension Services (INGENAES) webinar to learn about a new methodology to assess the degree to which agricultural technologies are gender-responsive and nutrition-sensitive in terms of their design, use, and dissemination. INGENAES will present the Technology Assessment approach to explain how technology developers and implementers can design agricultural technologies and distribution models to better reach men and women farmers. This discussion will draw on assessments of seven technologies in Bangladesh and Zambia.
