Women’s Empowerment in Agriculture Index (WEAI): USAID’s gender monitoring tool

2012

A seminar was held in FAO to introduce The Women’s Empowerment in Agriculture Index (WEAI), a tool that was recently developed by USAID’s Bureau of Food security to track progress on women’s empowerment as a direct or indirect result of interventions under the US Government’s global hunger and food security initiative, Feed the Future. The index was developed in collaboration with the International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI), the Oxford Poverty and Human Development Initiative (OPHI) and USAID. This seminar presented information on the purpose of the index, its structure and its usefulness as a tool for policy-makers and the international development community, including UN partner agencies.
