Reflections on the GREAT training and implications for sweetpotato breeding in Ghana


GHANA: Being a participant in the GREAT Gender-responsive Root, Tuber and Banana Breeding training in September 2016 and February 2017 was an awesome experience. Through the training, I was exposed to a new perspective in agriculture and research – peering through the gender lens. This enabled me to understand the need to ensure research objectives are planned to consider the diverse needs and roles of men and women in agriculture.
