This project is a comparative analysis of initiatives to achieve progress towards gender equity in agricultural value chains, primarily bananas, flowers and tea, co-ordinated by Banana Link and Women Working Worldwide. Our aim is that these examples of good practice can inform further work to ensure the respect of the rights of women workers and producers. 

Key drivers of change

Our learning from the case studies identified three key drivers of progress towards gender equity; education, an enabling environment and representation. It was considered that all three were required in successful work to achieve gender equity.
