Taking a gender sensitive approach to promote child development in coffee and cocoa value chains

Webinar Series: Gender in Cocoa and Coffee

In 2016, the initiative organized an international multi-stakeholder conference hosted by FAO in Rome on inclusive and gender-sensitive coffee and cocoa value chains. The initiative aims to continue the cross-fertilization and learning between the coffee and cocoa sector as well as between different coffee and cocoa-producing regions and countries. A series of webinars will explore the overlapping ambitions of actors involved in women’s empowerment in the coffee and cocoa sector.

Webinar Three

In the third webinar of the Gender in Cocoa and Coffee Initiative, we explore the relationship between gender and child protection.

The webinar highlights two gender sensitive approaches to child development and child education using village savings and loans associations.


Date: 24th March 2020
