Gender is a priority theme integrated across all of the Technical Centre for Agricultural and Rural Cooperation’s (CTA) work.
CTA’s gender work focuses on two key issues: boosting investment on women owned agribusiness development and enabling women beneficiaries to access preferential or special support product and services – ranging from financial grants to weather-based index insurance.
CTA works with a wide range of partners in the agricultural sector in this regard. The organisations include networks of women owned businesses as well as cooperatives, youth organisations and private sector information and communication technologies (ICT) service providers.
