The visibility of climate change and agriculture is increasing on the global development stage but to implement locally relevant adaptation and mitigation options for farmers requires gender sensitive and inclusive research design and planning.
The Gender and Inclusion Toolbox is an ongoing learning project for building the skills of development practitioners in the fields of climate change, agriculture, and community development in socially differentiated research using participatory methods. It offers learning and reflection activities for project teams, guidelines for sampling and planning and over a dozen qualitative and participatory action research (PAR) tools that can be customized for groups.
This toolbox was a collaboration between CARE International , the CGIAR's research program in Climate Change, Agriculture and Food Security (CCAFS) and The World Agroforestry Centre (ICRAF).
The project was also greatly shaped by the valuable feedback and recommendations of key practitioners, scientists and subject experts at Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO , International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD) , ICRAF , the CGIAR , Masters of Development Practice at Emory University and many local development partners. It was greatly shaped by the many workshops, co-design events, farmer reflections, and testing sessions held throughout 2013 - 2014 as part of the social learning approach at CCAFS.

We often think we know what gender, inclusion, and participation means but many of these "basic" concepts are more complicated than they seem. Test your knowledge and find out which topics you are a pro at and which ones you can brush up on!
