New contract to evaluate the participation by women in agricultural value chain
SOCODEVI will develop a tool to monitor and evaluate the participation of women in agricultural value chains under a contract signed with the International Finance Corporation (IFC), part of the World Bank Group.
With the ultimate goal of encouraging recognition of the work performed by women, this future tool will make it possible to better understand the impact of development action on gender equality.
The contributions of women in agriculture throughout the whole world are often not known. And there is a lack of mechanisms for measuring their actual participation. The tool under development will facilitate the collection of relevant data disaggregated by gender to monitor the participation and tremendous contributions of women to agriculture.
