The JP GTA aims to contribute to the achievement of Sustainable Development Goal 2 (Zero Hunger) by addressing the root causes of gender inequalities. It seeks to support the Rome-based Agencies to embed gender transformative approaches in their policy dialogues, programmes, working modalities and institutional culture and enhance their collaboration on zero hunger and gender equality.

To achieve this objective, the JP GTA works across four interlinked components:

1. Knowledge generation

Generating knowledge on gender transformative approaches, including a common Theory of Change and a minimum set of indicators to inform gender transformative programming. Learn more

2. Field testing

Piloting the Theory of Change in the field through activities in two countries, Ecuador and Malawi, triggering transformational change processes, enhancing agency-level learning and improving collaboration among the United Nations Rome-based Agencies (FAO, IFAD and WFP). Learn more

3. Capacity development and learning

Sharing learnings and developing capacities of employees from the RBAs and other stakeholders at country and global levels by raising awareness of the importance and relevance of gender transformative approaches. Learn more

4. Institutional and policy engagement

Engaging at the institutional and policy level to garner buy-in for gender transformative approaches from senior management within the RBAs, support change in institutional mechanisms and culture, and contribute to policy processes and global dialogue. Learn more
