I have a PhD in rural development with a major in gender and development. For the last 10 years i have been doing gender research specifically looking at gender and markets, intrahousheold decision making and their implications for women's economic empowerment and housheold well being. I am a Kenyan national and my work is in several African and South Asia countries. I hope to get experiences from others on their work on gender and value chains.
Who invited you to this platform?
I got information on the network through IFAD (Maria Hatl and Annina Lubock)
Which countries - regions do you focus on in your work?
Happy new year. I just had another look at the programme for the event on your wiki. I am interested to learn who is attending (is there a participants list already) and if there are links established now towards the Agri-ProFocus network in Ethiopia (I see some references in the programme). As you know the event is also highlighted on our Ethiopia platform. Please let me know if the AGri-ProFocus network could be of any further assistance.
Great good luck with the event. I understand that from our network Jote Wakjira is participating as well as Ann Waters . I suggest that you share info on the event outcomes both at this and at the Ethiopia platform. By the way I really liked the Tex talk.It inspires better than reading a paper. well done!
