Egypt AgLinks Dairy Development Program 2002

Tajikistan Veterinary and Agricultural Business Development 2007
In both of these USAID funded programs, I trained local veterinarians and extension agents on professional management, improved communication with farmers, gender analysis and record keeping. I worked with the local management team to institutionalize gender goals and reward efforts to creative attempts to develop training for women farmers.

Adventist Development and Relief Agency

In 2010, I worked with ADRA’s Southern Sudan Health, Nutrition and Empowerment (SSHiNE) program, a food security initiative funded by USAID, targeting mothers and young children. I strengthened the plan with poultry projects for women, providing both food and income, and developed training for men to learn to become more supportive to their women.

CropLife Foundation
In 2010, I reviewed CLF’s “Solving Africa’s Weed Problem” initiative to improve women’s lives through herbicide use. In my analysis of their data, I demonstrated the need for thorough gender analysis before introducing “labor saving technology,” to anticipate unintended negative consequences for the women they intended to help.
Food and Agriculture Organization for the United Nations

In 2012, I prepared the working document for a global Gender and Livestock Network, reporting to both the Animal Health Division (AGA) and Economic and Social Division (ESA). I have participated in numerous FAO fora and workshops relating to gender and livestock.

Global Alliance for Livestock Veterinary Medicines (GALVmed)

In 2011-2012, I am working with GALVmed on the gender dynamics affecting the development and delivery of livestock vaccines in Africa and Asia. The two desk reviews are available on the website. I helped facilitate a gender sensitivity

workshop for staff and partners in Nairobi in October 2011, and in Decwill begin their organizational Gender Audit, which will be completed in April 2012.
Heifer International

In 2007, I collaborated with Heifer staff and other consultants on the second edition of Raising Goats for Milk and Meat, 2nd ed, 2007.

As a consultant, I wrote the application for Heifer’s Nepal’s Feeding the Future (FtF) grant proposal to USAID for integrated goat/crop production in the Terai.

I have worked closely with Interaction’s Commission on the Advancement of Women, from facilitating workshops at the Annual Forum, to preparing documents and case studies.

International Livestock Research Institute

In 2008, I collaborated with ILRI’s Women in Livestock Development Initiative by sharing documents, editing and strategizing the concept.

International Food Policy Research Institute

In 2000, I prepared a report for IFPRI’s “2020 Vision” on Empowering Women to Achieve Food Security: Women’s Right’s to Livestock. From 2002-2011, I have collaborated with IFPRI on developing research models to capture the multiple dimensions of poor people’s use of livestock. In addition, I review proposals involving livestock and women.

Land O’Lakes International Division

From 2009-2010, I have worked with LOL’s IDD in developing their gender strategy, and training their staff in gender analysis for agricultural development.

Millennium Challenge Corporation

In 2006, I was MCC’s consultant on Small Ruminants and Gender in Morocco. I reviewed the Moroccan government’s proposal, and traveled throughout the country visiting potential project sites and assessing the potential impact of the plan. I worked with the MCC and Moroccan team to improve the plan for greater

positive impact on women and families through training and rewards for extension agents and institutional reform.
Vets Without Borders-US

In 2009, I developed the Vets to Liberia Project, which VWB-US adopted as its first overseas activity. To assess the animal health needs after the Civil War, I traveled to Liberia and visited farmers, donors, communities and government agencies. I submitted my review and analysis to the Government of Liberia and FAO, and wrote a successful proposal to Weideman Associates for a Farmer-to-Farmer USAID Grant for Paravet training in 2010.
