Gender capacity development and organizational culture change in the CGIAR Research Program on Aquatic Agricultural Systems: A conceptual framework.
The CGIAR Research Program on Aquatic Agricultural Systems (AAS) supports resource-poor women and men to overcome poverty, malnutrition and food insecurity by bringing science to bear on these challenges. Social and gender issues, which restrict women and men, adversely impact development in the aquatic agricultural systems. AAS has embraced gender-transformative approaches (GTA) to achieve its goals. Broad buy-in is needed to effectively integrate GTA into research programming and organizational processes and practices. This working paper outlines the conceptual framework for a gender capacity development and organizational culture (GCDOC) approach in AAS. The conceptual framework builds on three theoretical and conceptual bodies of literature: transformative learning, socio-technical regimes and governance, and organizational culture and learning.
