Workshop on Integrating Gender into Sentinel Landscapes Research in the CGIAR Research Program on Forests, Trees and Agroforestry (CRP-FTA)
Hotel Santika, Bogor, 1–2 July 2013
This two-day workshop brought together researchers and partners in the CGIAR Research Program on Forest, Trees and Agroforestry to address the concepts, methods and practicalities related to integrating gender issues into research on sentinel landscapes.
This report presents the outcomes of a two-day workshop that brought together researchers and partners in the CGIAR Research Program on Forest, Trees, and Agroforestry (CRP-FTA) to discuss concepts, methods and practicalities related to integrating gender issues into research on sentinel landscapes.
Presenter: Robert Nasi, Director of CRP FTA, CIFOR
This presentation gives an overview of the CGIAR Research Program on Forests, Trees and Agroforestry (CRP-FTA). It begins with descriptions of the goals of the CRP-FTA, its theory of change and its themes. The presentation goes on to examine in detail the goals and activities under the gender cross-cutting theme within the research program.
Presenter: Peter Holmgren, Director General, CIFOR
This presentation explains the framework and approach to sustainable forestry research and action. In particular, it discusses why a landscape approach is needed for forestry research and then outlines research topics relevant to the landscape approach. The presentation also illustrates the components of a sustainable landscapes framework, proposed objectives and performance measures.
Presenter: Anja Gassner, Sentinel Landscapes Coordinator, ICRAF/ILRI
This presentation covers the sentinel landscapes cross-cutting theme within the CGIAR Research Program on Forests, Trees and Agroforestry (CRP-FTA). The presentation:
- provides a rationale for the use of a long-term socio-ecological monitoring program in the CRP-FTA
- identifies and evaluates the sites selected as sentinel landscapes for the CRP-FTA
- outlines activities for 2013
- maps out core research questions and methodologies for long-term socio-ecological monitoring as part of the CRP-FTA sentinel landscapes program.
Presenter: Meine van Noordwijk, Chief Science Advisor, ICRAF
This presentation sets out a framework for the analysis of land-use/land-cover change along the forest transition curve. It suggests feasible entry points for the analysis of: a) gender relations among actors; b) gender content in institutions, policies and programs; and c) gendered outcomes.
Presenter: Bimbika Sijapati Basnett, Gender Resource Person, CIFOR
This presentation addresses the following questions:
- Why integrate gender into the CGIAR Research Program on Forest, Trees and Agroforestry?
- Why integrate gender into research on sentinel landscapes?
- How can gender be integrated?
- What resources are available to guide researchers?
Presenter: Marlène Elias, Gender Resource Person, Bioversity
This presentation gives an overview of the methods used in gender-related data collection and analysis. It identifies best practices at each stage of research, from design, to fieldwork, to analysis and reporting. It suggests that integrating gender into research and action provides a valuable opportunity to:
- examine how gender issues influence forest management.
- demonstrate excellence in gender-responsive research in the CGIAR Research Program on Forests, Trees and Agroforestry.
- generate outcomes that are more gender-equitable.
Presenter: Aaron Russell, Mekong Sentinel Landscapes, CIFOR
This presentation gives an overview of the Mekong Sentinel Landscape. It provides information on the following:
- ethnic and livelihood diversity along the Mekong Region Transect
- Greater Mekong Region sentinel landscape focal areas
- partners and partnership development processes
- research questions and methodologies for the Mekong Sentinel Landscape.
The presentation also depicts forest cover transitions in the sentinel landscape.
Presenter: Deborah Rubin, Director, Cultural Practice
This presentation provides an overview of key gender issues in value chains in the forestry sector and introduces approaches to gender analysis in value chain research and development.
