Empowering Women in Agribusiness

Women play a vitally important role in a whole range of agricultural activities. According to the Pew Research Centre, women make up at least half the productive workforce in some African countries.

However, it tends to be men, rather than women, who undertake and mostly benefit from profitable activities along agricultural value chains.
