PREFACE




This document is divided into two sections. The first part is a partially annotated list of
institutions in Latin America and the Caribbean conducting, funding or coordinating research and
development activities in a number of key sectors of interest to A.I.D. in the LAC region. Some
of these groups have experience with gender research, while others were identified as potential
groups to use in gender related research, but not necessarily having experience in gender related
research. The second section is a list of U.S.-based institutions who conduct research in the
sectoral areas. Some of the U.S. institutions work throughout the Third World and others
specialize in Latin America and the Caribbean region. All U.S. entries are annotated, describing
the organization and the type of activities that they undertake.

GENESYS gratefully acknowledges the previous works that allowed the compilation of this
list, including work by ICRW, the National Council for Research on Women, and Gale Research.
Several sources are listed at the back of this document. In many cases, the annotations are
taken from material published by the groups themselves. Other times, interviews or personal
communications informed the blurbs. Special thanks to Laurie Stevens for assistance with the
national institutes of statistics and final additions. GENESYS welcomes any additions, corrections
or updates on the information contained herein.

This report was produced as part of a GENESYS research effort for A.I.D.'s LAC Bureau
to identify gaps in knowledge about women in development in the region and to develop a
research plan for the Bureau.
