Please join Agrilinks and the Feed the Future Advancing Women’s Empowerment Program on the eve of Halloween for a webinar on gender dimensions in agriculture.
This webinar will explore the costs of gender-based violence that could be “lurking” in programs focused on agriculture and food security. Our discussion will feature a range of perspectives from project implementers, representatives from donors and the private sector.
This participation-focused event will be useful for agriculture and gender specialists alike, especially those interested in evidence-based lessons, resources, and tools for understanding and responding to gender-based violence at the project level.
