Listen to Senior Gender Advisor for A4NH, Agnes Quisumbing, share results on how incorporating a gender and assets perspective more explicitly in A4NH research has improved our understanding of how households make decisions and how interventions can alter cultural norms.

Both of the projects mentioned in this video are part of the "Gender, Agriculture, and Assets Project," or GAAP, which is jointly led by the International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI) and the International Livestock Research Institute (ILRI). To learn more, please visit the GAAP website:
