AWARD catalyzes the integration of gender into agrifood policies, thereby fostering a gender-responsive policy environment. We focus on increasing the visibility of women researchers and research leaders, generating, and curating compelling evidence and knowledge to stimulate gender-transformative change.

Through structured investment in thought leadership, evidence generation and advocacy, we are building an enabling environment for gender responsiveness to become an embedded cultural norm and practice become embedded cultural norm and training in the African AR4D by growing the awareness of gender issues into policies, programs, and accountability mechanisms.

We intentionally participate in global and continental forums to curate a series of conversations that amplify the role and need for equitable agri-food systems.
