VALUE4HER launch

VALUE4HER launch

Aperçu de l'événement

Women are actors in numerous agricultural value chains, offering huge potential for their participation in markets, but few are involved in the business end of the chain. Women often lack access to competitive markets; they lack the technical, leadership and management capacities to lead agribusiness for growth and are often limited in accessing business intelligence necessary to prosper in a market place. Women also experience other gender-related barriers, including access to finance, to help grow their businesses and enable them to compete more effectively in the market.

CTA, in collaboration with its partners from the ACP regions, has designed the programme VALUE4HER, to respond to these constraints, in order to increase incomes and employment for women in agribusinesses. VALUE4HER is an ACP wide programme aimed at increasing value for women from agribusinesses through market access, improving knowledge, skills and networks and global advocacy aimed at addressing some of the key barriers for women’s empowerment in agriculture.
