#GLFLive | How do we achieve gender equity in value chains?
Sep 13, 2022 | 5:00 PM EAT - 6:00 PM EAT
For the numerous projects and initiatives seeking to make the world’s favorite commodities more sustainable, nuanced thinking on gender is required for all the steps between, say, a coffee plant being raised in Ethiopia to a cappuccino being served in New York.
Are women not only being asked to participate in making decisions but also supported in actively doing so? Are proper trainings in place where needed and genuinely accessible to everyone? Are earnings and benefits shared equally across genders?
These are a few of the topics and questions that will be addressed in this GLF Live with Patti Kristjanson, a scientific expert who leads gender initiatives for the Food Systems, Land Use and Restoration (FOLUR) Impact Program, and Constance Okollet, a Ugandan farmer and Chairperson for the Osukuru United Women’s Network (OWN).
