In honor of International Women's Day 2018, IFPRI is spotlighting its work related to closing gender gaps in agriculture, poverty, and health around the world. Research plays an important role by providing the evidence on the costs of gender imbalances and benefits of eliminating them, and the effective approaches that present pathways to enduring positive change.

The IFPRI Strategy: Gender Research outlines how we strive to incorporate a gender component into our work; and our Gender Task Force brings representatives from all IFPRI offices together to help coordinate, support, and communicate IFPRI gender research.

IFPRI's International Women's Day 2018 spotlight page includes highlights from our recent gender work. More detailed information on IFPRI's ongoing gender research, tools, and projects can be found on our Gender page.
