GreyMatters Communications & Consulting has secured the communications and media mandate for the bi-annual CGIAR GENDER Research Conference, scheduled to be held in New Delhi from October 9 to 12.
The conference, co-hosted by the Indian Council of Agriculture Research (ICAR), will bring together global experts and researchers to discuss gender and social inequalities in agriculture.
“We are honoured to have been entrusted with this prestigious assignment for a global event of such magnitude. We are grateful to CGIAR for their trust in us. What makes this task challenging, yet special, is the demographically and culturally diverse audience that we need to cater to, along with the nuanced messaging required,” said Dr Navneet Anand, founder Director of GreyMatters.
Marianne Gadeberg, Strategic Communications and Content consultant at CGIAR GENDER Impact Platform said, “GreyMatters brings with it an enormous 13-year experience, not only in agriculture but across various sectors, working in public affairs and advocacy. What sets them apart is their ability to navigate the intersection of policy, politics, and research, thanks to their extensive experience in government communications. With GreyMatters, we have a clear plan to effectively capture and communicate the rich deliberations at the high-level conference to a diverse set of audiences.”
Dr Anand added, “Despite India being predominantly an agrarian country, there is minimal interest in agriculture. The conversation around agricultural issues is muted, especially regarding gender issues. Our challenge is to amplify the significance of this conference, which brings together a multitude of global experts with deep and diverse experiences in social and action research. We are confident that our teams are prepared to reach out to journalists across the country with the relevant messages.”
The CGIAR is a global research partnership dedicated to transforming food, land, and water systems in a climate crisis, with a focus on a food-secure future.
