The publication complements the FAO Guiding Framework on gender-sensitive value chain development by providing practical tools and examples of successful approaches to address the gender-based constraints that affect agrifood value chains.
The Accelerator for Agriculture and Agroindustry Development and Innovation (3ADI+) is a joint value chain and market systems development programme, spearheaded by FAO and the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO).
The increasing demand for high-value products on international and domestic food markets provides an opportunity for developing countries to generate economic growth and gainful employment. investments continue to hinder the development of inclusive and efficient agricultural and food systems.
The purpose of this publication (part of the FAO series on sustainable food value chain development) is to facilitate the systematic integration of gender equality dimensions into value chain development programmes and projects.
