Many aquaculture and fisheries agencies and research institutes are starting to wonder what they should be doing about getting gender into their work – “mainstreaming” is one of the buzz words we hear.
Across the fence in agricultural research organizations, you can find some useful materials to guide your organizations’s emerging gender strategy. Start by taking a look at the new strategy and plan to mainstream gender at the International Livestock Research Institute, one of the CGIAR Centers.

1 Integrating gender in projects and programs
2 Integrating gender in ILRI’s organizational structure and culture
3 Generating and disseminating evidence on gender and livestock
4 Engaging partners in gender mainstreaming, research and dissemination of information
