Addressing Gender-Based Violence in Agriculture and Market Systems Development
Not only does GBV negatively affect the health and well-being of those who experience it, it also negatively affects the function of agriculture and market systems by reducing agricultural productivity, workplace and worker productivity, workforce readiness, and market competitiveness, stability, and resilience. While on the surface it may appear that addressing GBV is outside the purview of an agriculture or MSD project, in fact, GBV can manifest within the day-to-day activities of many actors across all levels of the agricultural market system. The USAID Feed the Future Advancing Women’s Empowerment (AWE) Program is excited to introduce the Toolkit to Address Gender-based Violence in Agriculture and Market Systems Development to provide practical, how-to guidance for agriculture and MSD project technical staff and gender and social inclusion advisors to address GBV in Ag/MSD programs. This webinar will provide a deep dive into what the toolkit offers, explore how this toolkit fills a key gap in agriculture and market systems programs, and share lessons learned from pilot testing the Toolkit with a USAID Activity in Uganda.
