VIDEO: Rachel Kyte sends a message to the Transformative Gender Research Workshop

Rachel Kyte, Chair of the CGIAR Fund Council and World Bank Vice Presicent of Sustainable Development, sends a video message to the Building Coalitions, Creating Change workshop to highlight gender disparities in agricultural development. "Globally, only 10-20% of land owners are women, and in many countries that number is even lower. Female farmers tend to have smaller plots with poorer soils," she says.
 
Hosted by WorldFish, the workshop ‘Building Coalitions, Creating Change: An Agenda for Gender Transformative Research in Agricultural Development’, aims to review existing approaches to gender transformation in development to identify good practices and lessons learned.
 
The event provides a space to discuss and share experiences in gender and development research and practice in agriculture and other sectors.
