Intervention Guide For The Women's Empowerment in Agriculture Index (WEAI): Practitioners' Guide To Selecting and Designing WEAI Interventions

Date Published: 
March 1, 2016

The Intervention Guide for the Women’s Empowerment in Agriculture Index (WEAI) helps donors and implementers translate the evidence and insights gained from the WEAI survey results into practice. The WEAI was developed by the United States Agency for International Development’s (USAID) Feed the Future Initiative, the International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI), and the Oxford Poverty and Human Development Initiative as a direct measure of economic empowerment and gender parity at the individual and household levels. This guide assists practitioners in selecting and designing the evidence-based interventions that are most relevant to the domains of empowerment prioritized in the WEAI, using a market-systems and gender-responsive approach. While the primary users of this guide are expected to be implementers and managers of Feed the Future projects, the document may also be relevant to local stakeholders as well as other donors and implementers who are engaged in livelihoods and gender.
