Martha Osorio, Ambra Gallina, Katarzyna Jaskiewicz, Anna Laven, Lisanne Oonk, Rebecca Moharan

In June 2017, FAO, Twin and KIT organized a multi-stakeholder workshop on “Promoting Inclusive and Gender-Sensitive Producer Organizations and Agricultural Investments in Cocoa and Coffee Value Chains”. A range of actors from coffee and cocoa value chains came together to share experiences of their work in investing in gender-sensitive policies and activities and incorporating these into their sectors.

This publication is the product of the dialogues and group conversations held during the workshop.
