This brochure spotlights the project that focused on increasing the quality and variety of dairy products being processed by women - dominated milk producer groups. There is a requirement for improving the production and marketability of traditional dairy products. This can be achieved through the use of better practices in milk processing, dairy production and marketing, as well as the introduction of higher quality equipment and tools. The project specifically aimed to increase the income of rural women through value addition and job creation along the dairy value chain. Targeting the rural economy in this manner is important in Mongolia because the processing of dairy products is typically undertaken by women. 11 pp.

This Toolkit aims to help countries in selecting and analyzing value chains for opportunities to improve climate change resilience and reduce gender inequalities. Key strengths of the value chain approach include assisting in adaptation planning, analysis of vulnerabilities and hotspots across a value chain, assessing risks at each node, identifying new market opportunities to help communities adapt, and suggesting partnerships in which there is mutual benefit from the implementation of the strategies. 140 pp.

This paper sets to explore the financial habits and constraints of rural women in two Sub-Saharan African countries (Mozambique, Tanzania), both at country and village level, with the objective of answering how, and why, they differ from those of their male counterparts. Building on the results achieved through this analysis, as well as on the general literature available on the topic, this paper aims to develop a range of general recommendations that can assist both local policymakers and other public stakeholders, as well as formal financial service providers, in shaping their approach towards a more gender-sensitive provision of rural financial services. 78 pp.
