Cereals remain largely marginalized from the debate on gender-responsive breeding. This project aims to provide a timely contribution to the understanding of consumer and processing traits in wheat, with a focus on cereal-based cooperatives in Morocco. We employ qualitative action research that builds on existing wheat research for development projects, and attends to the questions of which traits men and women prefer in processing and consuming wheat; the underlying reasons; what engagement processes are effective; and the policy implications. We anticipate that the results of this research will be useful for a number of audiences, including men and especially women in local communities; CGIAR Research Program on Wheat breeders; and the CGIAR Generating Evidence and New Directions for Equitable Results (GENDER) Platform.
