This two-page publication highlights 12 key aspects that scientists working on research for development projects in agriculture and natural resource management should bear in mind to share their research findings in a gender-responsive way. A gender-responsive communications strategy must be adequately planned and budgeted for at the earliest stages of the research process, and comprises four facets: understanding your audience; showcasing relevant gender findings; sharing these findings with differentiated stakeholders through gender sensitive channels and monitoring and evaluating all these efforts for continuous improvement. This requires a good understanding of the topics that capture the interest of these stakeholders, their preferred ways of accessing your findings, capacity to interpret the information you produce, and the intended use of this information. Knowledge is power. Ensuring that research and action partners, but also the local women, men and marginalized groups who are the target beneficiaries of our research are able to equitably access our findings can support their empowerment and is an essential part of the research-for-development process.
