IFPRI Food Security in Practice No. 2

This practitioners' guide bridges the gap between research and practice by providing up-to-date, relevant information on why and how gender issues, when taken into account, can improve the design, implementation, and effectiveness of development projects and policies. IFPRI's work on gender and intrahousehold issues has already influenced programs, such as conditional cash transfers in Latin America, by contributing to the growing evidence that households do not make decisions as one, and that resources controlled by women lead to improved child outcomes. IFPRI's gender research has also contributed to a wider acceptance by policymakers that paying attention to decision making processes within the household is essential to the success of development interventions.
