The vision for this high-level event is to share cutting-edge knowledge and evidence on closing the gender gap in farming under climate change, and to convene thinkers and doers in a forum to inspire renewed action.

Specific objectives include:

  1. Share key research results related to gender, climate change, agriculture and food security.
  2. Discuss how such results are being used or could be used to reduce gender inequalities including their implications for policy and programs.
  3. Identify key gaps in the research that still need to be addressed to achieve optimal gender inclusion.
  4. Identify appropriate frameworks and methods for collecting and analyzing data around the topics of gender and climate change.
  5. Networking for building potential partnership and/or strengthening existing partnerships.

The format of the event will include several research presentations in the morning and a panel discussion in the afternoon.
