Do these large companies 'buy' the land from someone/government? Was the land first owned by these (now displaced) smallholder farmers or was it government owned?
Thank you Nada, I have noted your question and will ask Kelly and Lis to answer during the question round.
Thank you for the presentation of the report, good work! A question on the elephant in the room, the COVID-19 pandemic. Does ActionAid already see the impact on women’s rights in the supply chain? And what do you propose to do to counter this, both on the short-term
Josefine Hintz (ICLEI)
Hi there, Josefine from ICLEI - Local Governments for Sustainability, have you looked at the influence on how to leverage public procurement to work with business towards gender equality in global supply-chains?
can you please share the link to the Gender recommendations for the UN Binding Treaty
On COVID-19, there are reliable reports from Eastern Africa on major losses in cut flower industry, many of whom are women
Thanks Josje and Josephine for your questions, have noted them for the Q& A round. Thanks too Alistair for your addition, will mention.
now when world economy is heading for a post-Covid Periode, shouldn´t we raise also the recommendation that public spending /economic support packages are focussing on "social infrastructures" as women´s shelter houses, educaiton, children´s care facilities, health provisions etc?
Kelly we will share the powerpoint and resources after this webinar with you
Regadring Covid 19: same applies for agrment factories in Asia (Bangladesh, Myanmar etc), with brands cancelling orders

Hi this is Mary from Rwanda Women's Network. I am wondering if the researchers took interest into those researched countries some of their investment policies. ?
Sebahat Derin Atiskan
I have a question on the report’s suggestions for the governments.What are the concrete suggestions of your report about the ways to include a gender lens & gender analysis on National Actions Plans on Business and Human Rights? Could you please elaborate more on this?
Mary and Sebahat thank you for these questions, have noted them.
Also if you know any ‘good practice’ regarding gender sensitive grievance mechanism, that would be really helpful. Thank you!
Food Systems Theme
Thank you so much for this! So helpful. Is there any evidence and/or guidance for companies in the ag/food space?
Thank you for the great presentation!
India is drafting the national action plan for business and human rights through the lens of Gender Equality
Thank you for the ppt!
Thank you for the presentation
A great presentation, thank you. Any thoughts about girls in this context?
Congratulations on a great report! When looking at gendered impacts you have highlighted disaggregated data as crucial. I can imagine disaggregated data is not available in many contexts. Are there any good examples of use of qualitative and quantitative data in relation to evaluating gender impacts of business?
Do you recommend particular sources to consult on making various types of grievance mechanisms more gender accessible and responsive?
hi everyone, just to mention that regarding covid and the impact in the supply-chain (garment sector), Clean Clothes Campaign is collecting information on the situation globally and publishing it in a live blog https://cleanclothes.org/news/2020/live-blog-on-how-the-coronavirus-influences-workers-in-supply-chains
Just a comment, at Sherpa, an NGO working with ACtion Aid France on stratégic litigations against multinationlas, we are boycotting NCPs, cause our complainbts before the NCP have shown that only judicial actions or binding laws can have an real impact on Human rights
Thank you for answering my question, very clear. And thank you for this interesting presentation!
Global unions are also a source of information on impact of Corona

Great report thanks for the presentation!
iPhone van Marieke
so if you want our input and cooperation from trade unions, let’s keep in touch firstname.lastname@example.org
thanks everyone for the info and links! And of course to Kelly and Lois. Especially handy that there are blogs that are gathering this information. I am still especially interested in any urgent measure that can be taken, considering the economic and financial impact might lead to (severe) budgetary cuts in the longterm.
Thank you for a great presentation everyone!
Laura Chello - TDHIF
Thank you so much! Great presentation.
Great, well-structured, clear presentation! Thank you!
Hello, I was wondering weather you have a literature recommendation or any other further information on gender impacts of purchasing practices. Thanks!
Trócaire’s recent report may also be of interest which focuses on the impact of climate change and corporate activities on women, along with ways in which women are creating transformative change “Women Taking the Lead: Defending Human Rights and the Environment” https://www.trocaire.org/sites/default/files/resources/policy/women_taking_the_lead_lowres_1_0.pdf
A precision: of course all NCPs are not equal in efficiency. We are asking for improvements of the French NCP for years, and boycotting it, at least until it operates reforms. thank you for this very interesting presentation
Anna, Banana Link
the FairFood Programme on tomates in Florida is quite a good example on grievence mechanisms, and our recent banana Link case study explain the 'how to', to some extent.

The way we have been working on the duty of vigilance in France is by being more general and not sector specific or gender specific but focusing on capacity building of women’s community and organisations is one of the avenue to bring more access to justice (Sherpa)
