(In En) ICRISAT is concerned about the implications of technological changes in agriculture for the welfare of women. A 2-day informal workshop on methodologies for gender research was held at ICRISAT Asia Center. The primary objectives of the workshop were to refine the Institute''s gender research methodologies and to initiate the development of a strategy for mainstreaming gender analysis in technology development at ICRISAT. Specifically, the workshop was intended to identify gender-related differences in preferences for varieties and technologies that may constrain technology adoption; identify a set of key indicators to measure the intrahousehold distribution of welfare gains from the adoption of given technologies; and identify simple, accurate, and quick methods for data collection. The workshop was intended by participants from research and training institutions and non-governmental organizations in addition to ICRISAT scientists. This document contains a synthesis of discussions that took place, and the summaries of presentations made by participants. Specific recommendations on developing a strategy for mainstreaming gender are included in the synthesis.
