The Peanut Innovation Lab hosted a webinar to highlight gender considerations in peanut research. Gender is important in peanut production, marketing, processing and consumption, so it’s included as a cross-cutting issue in all Peanut Innovation Lab projects. Gender and youth also are the primary areas of focus for a group of project proposals under consideration.
Researcher Carol Tyroler talks about findings of a recent report on gender in peanut production, processing and marketing internationally, while Helga Recke, a long-time facilitator of programs to empower women in agricultural roles in Africa, discuss gender considerations in peanuts.
