Genardis : Gender for Agriculture and Rural Development in the Information Society in African, Caribbean and Pacific Countries - Phase III

Phases I and II of this small grants project were funded under projects 101698 and 102900, respectively.

Genardis III will provide 15 awardees - mainly, rural women from African, Caribbean and Pacific countries - with capacity building and funding to pursue small research projects aimed at furthering knowledge on gender issues in the application of information and communications technology (ICT) in agriculture and rural development. Successful applicants will participate in a proposal development workshop and a gender evaluation methodology training course before commencing their fieldwork, and a research production workshop once the fieldwork is finished.

The research reports and findings will be disseminated by means of various electronic and conventional media. The project is expected to foster networking between Genardis researchers and promote gender-sensitive application of ICTs in agriculture and rural development.
