Can be run on request
University of East Anglia, Norwich, UK
Social scientists based in research and development organisations, in particular CGIAR-led research programmes, DFID-funded research programme consortia, other research funded by bilateral donors such as IDRC and other private programmes.
The course will critically examine common assumptions and identify and characterise key social variables that are hypothesised to influence adaptation outcomes more specifically and development outcomes more generally, in particular, access to resources and their allocation within and beyond the household.
Participants will develop an understanding of key gender concepts and the methods that can facilitate the design, collection and analysis of gender-sensitive data with potential to provide insights into larger processes of social and livelihood change.
The course is conducted in English. Full competence in English, written and spoken is an essential requirement.
Fee dependent on number of participants, please apply through the consortium lead of your organisation. This includes all tuition and self catering accommodation, refreshments and lunch daily (Monday to Friday).
